Christmas Tree Cookie Platter

Let’s continue with the simple Christmas cookie designs, shall we? This cookie platter can feed a crowd {or a couple very sugar craving holiday goers} and have a wow-factor by arranging them just right. There are only three simple cookie shapes here that I’m sure even the most occasional baker has in the back of the […]

Santa Gnome Cookies

Coming off of the labor intensive gingerbread village I shared with you in my last post, these guys were a breeze to make! After some persuasion from a cookie friend {you know who you are}, here is a brief tutorial on how to create these rustic gnomes, all Santa-esque, in time for Christmas. I first […]

My 2-D Gingerbread Attempt

Let’s start by saying these cookies were a total pain to make. I almost quit on several occasions. There were so. many. steps. and so. many. cookies. I had pondered eating the entire batch from the get go when a couple days frosting turned into several weeks desperately trying to finish them. I swear, I […]

A Brief Gobble.

Here’s a quick post of cookies I made last year, before I entered the world of blogging and watermarks. Some are fall-ish, some are for turkey day, but all are meant to get you in the Thanksgiving mindset, and maybe give you a little inspiration to create some goodies of your own! In case you […]

Fall Tic-Tac-Toe Cookies

I love coming up with cookies that can double as fun for kids! As I mentioned in an earlier post, I wanted to try out other varieties of my Halloween tic-tac-toe cookies. My youngest got such a kick out of playing it with me, and yes, munching on the pieces, that making another set was […]

Caramel Apple Cookies

Autumn is here! Well, it was for a bit. Now it’s hot and humid again and I have the air conditioning on. But yesterday…yesterday was Fall and we had the fireplace going. We were cozy with our blankets and watching Mary Poppins and eating popcorn and apples! It was exciting to embrace the change of […]

Halloween Tic-Tac-Toe Cookies!

After a wonderful end of summer trip to Maine, the flurry of getting the kids back to school, and some last minute gardening and room painting, I feel I am finally getting into an autumn state of mind. Halloween items are out in force, so inspiration abounds for creating festive cookies. I’ve got a few ideas […]

A Few More Stars and Stripes

Now that my computer is up and running again (HOORAY!), I was able to retrieve a few more patriotic cookie pictures to share for the upcoming weekend. It’s easy to get into the red, white and blue scheme this time of year, and I didn’t want to make a typical flag or star cookie, so […]

Fun for the Fourth

Being uber dependent on your computer is a scary thing. No more so do you realize this until you attempt a software update one night and get a spinning wheel of death the next morning when you try and turn it on. Terrifying. My photos! My email! My calendar! Where the heck am I supposed […]

Hey Girlfriends!

I’m like the kid on Christmas who’s got a gift and gives it early. When I am excited about a cookie idea, I just gotta show someone because I love it right then and can’t wait! That’s what happened with these. {Here’s a spoiler alert to the Far Pond Ladies} My high school girlfriends and […]
