Cookies and such!

Since I last shared cookies, this is what has been in the makes!

I offered these 4th of July cookies as a special on Instagram:


As shown and all ready to go for any picnic or barbeque!

 

What better way to start a Disney vacation than with Disney cookies?!


Just for fun...and because I could not wait to use a few new cookie cutters that I purchased:


Instead of "Desserts in a Jar" for this week's girls night (Kelli's get-together, not mine) I decided to do something a little different.

Burger baskets...cookie and cupcake style:



These were so much fun to make!  Tucked inside that cute little hamburger bun (yellow cupcake) is a brownie for the "burger"!  I colored store bought icing for the "ketchup and mustard"...as well as the "lettuce" which was actually coconut!  The ketchup for the fries is just my usual cookie icing!  Overall...a simple creation that packs a lotta punch...don'tcha think?!

Now, I am off to work on 4th of July cookies before meeting a new cookie friend, Nancy, for lunch!

Till next time!

I'm not going to lie...

...since I have been posting on Instagram, I find it much harder to make myself post on my blog!  Sad...but true!  Call it laziness, I'm sure that is what it is...and I will be the first to "call myself out" for my breaking one of my goals at the first of the year, which was to actually post MORE on my blog.  Now, that didn't last long, did it?!

Anyhoo, here was my "last week" in review...

One of my favorite cookies to do:

 
Seriously...who doesn't love all things Dr. Seuss?!

Corie ordered mermaids, starfish and seahorses for Camdyn's 6th birthday:


How about some Super Heros:




I made these cookies for one of my BEST clients and new neighbor, Corie (yep, same one as above)!  She recently moved into my neighborhood (I even told her about the house when it was for sale!) so I decided that a little "welcome" basket was in order!  What better way to do that than cookies disguised as picnic food?!


And how cute are they in these FUN basket boxes by BRP?! 


On the cookie front...that's all I got for ya!

I have however, become obsessed with "Desserts in a Jar"!  Go ahead...Google it OR head over to Pinterest...there is a plethora of ideas!

Kelli's "girl's night" peeps benefit from my latest obsession...I have been making them for their get togethers on Monday night to watch The Bachelor (ugghhhh, why would you do that...but, whatever).

These were Peanut Butter Pie:


This peanut butter filling is A-MAZ-ING...seriously, "crack in a jar", BUT (and there always is one), I would recommend NOT melting the chocolate that is just above the Oreo crust.  See those cute little wooden spoons?  They were moot...even a regular spoon had a hard time going through the now, "hardened" melted chocolate.  Next time I would just drop a few chocolate chips in and be done with it!

Next, were these little jars of Heaven:


YUM!  Blueberry Cheesecake!  Now for this one, I can't really give an exact recipe...it was a collaboration!  I already had an awesome recipe for blueberry topping, so I just paired it up with a "No Bake" cheesecake recipe that I Googled (not sure how I ever lived without the Internet!).  Of course there is a simple graham cracker crust on the bottom (just follow the recipe on the box).  VOILA...instant deliciousness!

I already have my recipe for next week...can't wait to give it a try!

Till then...happy baking!
