The Eagle Has Landed- Eagle Scout Cookies

Eagle Scout Cookies

Last week, I had the pleasure of making cookies for the Eagle Scout Court of Honor for two young men. They were for a friend's son and his BFF. I haven't seen my friend in a very long time, but keep up with on Facebook. She is hilarious! This was an exciting assignment because I have never made Eagle Scout cookies before. Baby shower cookies? Yes, lots. Baptism cookies? Yes, lots. Birthday cookies? Yes, lots. Eagle Scout Cookies? No I thought it would be cool to make cookies with each of … [Read more...]

Diaper Pin and Baby Face Cookies

Diaper pin and baby face cookies

Last week I had a friend call. She needed some cookie favors for a baby shower. The catch? The shower was only 2 1/2 days away. Usually I would have declined that order. But she is a friend and I didn't want to disappoint her baby shower crowd. I needed a design that could be pulled off in the time frame. (I usually like 2 weeks to design and plan then make the cookies.) I had a 3 minute brain storming session with my husband and two of his sisters. And this is what came from it. These … [Read more...]

CTR Cookies- A How To

CTR Cookies

These red and grey CTR cookies were the last CTR cookies I made. And they happened to be for my daughter's baptism. So they are super special to me! However, I'm  just about to make another set.

It is to remind us to always make good choices. I get more inquiries about CTR cookies than anything else.  They also … [Read more...]

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow, snowflake cookies

Snowflake cookies

I like snow in December. It fills the time before Christmas with anticipation. It makes the world prettier. And the kids love it. But this year, we have seen zero snow. None. And I live in a climate where snow is normal. It's 60 degrees outside today.   (Which is really nice, but I miss the snow.) In order to entice the snow gods, I made some snowflake cookies. I will seriously be bummed if we don't have a white Christmas. Can I just say that I'm in love with these? Not to be too … [Read more...]

Elephant Baby Shower Cookies

Elephant Cookies

Let's just be honest here. I'm plum worn out from Thanksgiving. I made 90 cups of mashed potatoes and 60 pounds of turkey for Thanksgiving this year.I think I will probably not recover until Christmas. And then I will need to recover from Christmas. What's a girl to do? Our Thanksgiving was epic. In case you didn't know, we celebrated my Grandpa's 100th birthday on Thanksgiving. Almost his entire family gathered to give him a metaphoric high-five for making it to be 100. It was so fun to … [Read more...]
