20th Annual Cookie Day!

On Saturday I went home for Cookie Day. One of my favorite days of the year. Remember when I wrote about the 1,008 Christmas Cookies (and Counting) last year? This year, Cookie Day was extra special as we marked 20 years! The ladies were in charge of the real cookies and I was in charge of dipping pretzels, ritz peanut butter crackers and peanut butter balls in almond bark. I’m so happy my friend Emma joined us and helped me dip. 🙂

What kind of Christmas cookies do you make?

(Please take a second to appreciate that it’s “snowing” on my blog. How fancy is that?)


Turkey Cookie Treats


Remember when I visited my cousin’s farm a few weekends ago? Well, a few of us girls sat down and made a few of these super cute turkey cookie treats. All you need are Rolos, Oreos, candy corn, black frosting and white frosting. Taddaaa! You have a festive cookie just in time for Thanksgiving. These are a big hit with kids…or with adults like me who love dissecting dessert. One of my cousins found this idea from a blog somewhere, so I totally give that blogger credit (whoever that clever blogger might be).

Well, there you have it! A cute dessert that’s not pie. Switch it up. Throw a curve ball at your uncle.
