Some Christmas Cookies

I was so happy to find the time to bake some Christmas cookies with my daughter this year.  We made the traditional family favorites and I got to show her some recipes that were written by her Great-Great Grandmother! We are so blessed! Merry Christmas! 

She made a Candy Cane name cookie! 
For the first time she was actually able to really help with the baking and she loved it! 
Candy Cane cookies from my Great Grandmother's recipe! I was lucky enough to have her into adulthood as she passed away when I was 24. I miss her so very much!

Back to school Apples!

As a teacher, I like to take the time to thank the teachers that work so hard with my own children each and every day.  

I made these apple thank you cookies and boxed them up for the kid's teachers.  Each of my children made a card to attach to the box and I hope they enjoy them! Teachers are such an important part of my kid's lives and I'm lucky that they have such amazing teachers! 

Back to Baking with Engagement Celebrations!

After taking a hiatus from baking, I've been back in the kitchen to make some special cookies for my family members.  In the last six months, two of my cousins have gotten engaged and both weddings are planned for the fall of 2017.

To help them celebrate, I made these engagement ring cookies, with the wedding date in the middle, and then hearts with the initials of the happy couples!

Football Family!

My son just finished his first season playing tackle football and over the last three months we've become a football family. 

I made these jersey and football cookies for the players and coaches! We are so proud of all the boys!
