Catching Up

I've been out of my usual cookie baking and blogging routine in the past few weeks, but am happy to be back with a few pictures to share.  Please excuse the quality of these pictures -- most were decorated out of town, and without the benefit of Mr. Cookie District (or his camera) around to photograph them for me.

First of all, I made a few purple potted flower cookies for my grandma's birthday.  I used this tutorial as my guide, packaged them with purple paper, and stacked them in a basket for delivery.  There are few things my grandma loves more than the color purple, and I knew this was the perfect cookie for her.

We were in Michigan for Thanksgiving, and I made a few turkey cookies (just to clarify, that would be turkey shaped, not turkey flavored):

We also fried a turkey,

and cut down a Christmas tree (note - objects in picture are much, MUCH colder than they appear....).

Now I'm looking forward to a fun week of baking, including a batch for the Food Blogger Cookie Swap.  Have a good week everyone!

Happy Birthday, J!

I did a double batch of cookies this past week for a very special birthday boy.  His mom is a friend (when did we all get old enough to have friends with children??) and she had the idea to do small cookies as cupcake toppers, in addition to some cookie favors.

The cookies looked adorable on the beautiful cupcakes (homemade!) and I will share pics as soon as I get them.

Happy birthday, sweet boy!  We love you!
