Easter Egg Cookie & Jelly Bean Tic-Tac-Toe!

I have made many cookie tic-tac-toe sets. They consist of a giant cookie “board” and LOTS of cookie minis of various designs, but these guys…so much easier! Just one large egg cookie with a side of jelly beans, and you’ve got yourself a sweet treat of fun for the Easter baskets! A brief low-down on how I created them […]

Easy Flower Cookie Platter

Ever since I created and posted this flower cookie platter, I’ve had lots questions regarding it. It’s so easy, you guys, and the design came to me at the last minute.

Simple Stackable Flower Cookies

As much as I torture pride myself with the rigors of particular cookie concepts, sometimes it’s the simplest of cookies that I like best. Straight forward. Easy-ish to frost. Forgiving of air pockets and color bleeding. Modestly sweet with a nice impact. This is the way cookie decorating should be! Daisies are always at the top […]
