This was such a fun set of cookies to make! My college friend Sara called me recently to ask me to make cookies for her daughter Ellie. Ellie is a girl who knows what she wants (not unlike her mama!!). When Ellie got on the phone, she told me in detail what she wanted . . . coordinated, but different, sets of cookies for her classmates, soccer teammates and family! With her directions in mind, I got to work!
"Happy Birthday Ellie" plaques for her classmates.
Assorted turquoise and brown "happy birthday" cookies to share with family.
I loved the phone call I got from Ellie and her mom tonight when she received the cookies in the mail. Who would have thought when Sara and I met in 1987 that I'd be making cookies for her sweet girl all these years later? Thank you for the donation Sara, and thank you for being such a dear friend all these years!!
