Happy Thanksgiving!

I was so excited to try these cute Thanksgiving placecard cookies I spotted recently on one of my favorite blogs . . . for a first try at the brush embroidery icing technique, I was pretty happy with how they turned out!

Happy Birthday cookies for my baby!


I can't believe my baby is going to be 7 years old tomorrow!  Where does the time go??   Since his birthday is on Thanksgiving this year, he wanted to bring treats to share with his class a day early.  When I asked him what he wanted to share, he was torn - first it was ice cream, then cake, and then, finally - cookies!   I decided to try to accommodate all three requests with these cookies.  They were quite a hit with his first grade classmates earlier today.  Because school is only a half day on the day before Thanksgiving, lunch was at 9:47 am!

Fall Cookies

Today was parent-teacher conference day at our elementary school.  Our amazing PTO has a tradition of hosting a pot-luck dinner for the teachers, who always put in a long day to accommodate parent schedules.   I volunteered to send in cookies. . . both to treat the teachers, and to experiment with some new fall cookie cutters I got!  I was pretty happy with how these turned out - and I hope the teachers enjoyed them too!
