I don't know when....

Yes, 'tis true.  Once I begin baking cookies, I don't know when to stop!

Have a cookie!

The platter includes those sugar cookies that were on the blog.  I dipped the edges in chocolate, then dipped them in assorted toppings to give a nice edge to them.  I did the same with the chocolate cookies, a recipe from the Pioneer Woman.  Then, from my Martha Stewart files, I added the Dried Cranberry Shortbread which was cut into heart shapes after baking.  Next, I added Heart Sandwich Cookies, also from Martha Stewart.  Not included on the platter are any of the cookies I baked for the assisted living center party that our Circle helped with on Friday afternoon.  I sent all of them along to the party.

This platter is going to a chorus gathering following today's performance.  The platter is Strawberry Fair (now discontinued) by Johnson Brothers.

I hope you have a good week-end ahead.  We hope to catch some UT basketball on TV later today.  The men are playing Missouri.

The predicted overnight snowfall did not impact us here, and we have springlike temperatures in the forecast for the coming week!

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.

  14. Nellie, these are fabulous. I'm making soup, but I think I may need to make a batch of something yummy. You're my inspiration.
