Clay Pot Cookie Gift!

You know how I love pretty packaging, don't you?  No matter how much time you spend making a treat, you can take it to a whole new level with packaging.  Today I took simple flower cookies and made them extra special with this simple idea.  You could use any cookie, bar, brownie or fudge with the same packaging.

Birthday Scotcharoo Bars!

There are Scotcharoos and then there are Birthday Scotcharoos.  It's like a Rice Krispie Treat dressed up, ready to party.  It is the perfect birthday treat for my daughter who is gluten free and the perfect treat for me because I LOVE Scotcharoos!  They have been a family favorite since I was a little girl and I love them as much now as before.  Maybe better because they are cuter than before!

Sea Shells in a Jar!

These sea shells were gathered and placed in a jar, only you won't find them on any beach.  In my kitchen yes, beach no.  It's beach week in my kitchen, so I'm dreaming up ways to feel like I'm spending my summer days on the beach.  When reality is, I'm actually no where remotely close to a beach.  So the sea shell cookies are the next best thing.

Beach Ball Cookie Platter!

Whether you're heading to the beach, pool, or the sprinklers in the yard, I've got cookies just for the occasion.  Yes, anything involving a beach ball is an occasion.  And they are perfect for the guest who says, oh, I'll just have a small bite.  When actually they really want the whole thing.  I mean, who just wants a small bite of anything, unless it's liver?  And then, who would even want a bite?
 
Anyway, back to the beach ball cookies. 
I hand cut several cookies, decorated and assembled them to look like a beach ball.

Beach Themed Oreo's

It's another summer of fun filled days on the beach.  Or in my case, fun filled days in the kitchen making beach themed sweets.  Either way, something about the beach makes me happy.  Mostly to look at because I really don't like getting sand stuck all over my feet. 
 
However, I do like sand on my Oreo's, which leads me to these.

Ice Cream Cone Sandwiches!

Nothing old fashioned about these ice cream sandwiches...I took an old fashioned treat and gave it a new look and I love it!  Perfect way to cool off on a hot summer day.  Are you feeling the heat?  Do you love it, or hate it?  Personally, I love it.  Maybe it's because I'm inside, looking outside at the 99 degree sunshine.  Just knowing I don't have to bundle up to go anywhere makes me happy.

So if you need a little something to cool you down, these are for you.  If you're like me, inside looking out, these are for you too, because they include chocolate.

 Wow, the summer days quickly passing by, aren't they?  You can slow things down by planning a summer LUAU with the help of Oriental Trading.  With everything they have to offer in party supplies, you'll find plenty of time for a backyard LUAU!

Summer Cookies!

It's been awhile since I've shown you the cookies I've made besides those for my blog, so today's the day. I had planned to make a tutorial on the hot air balloon cookies, but before I knew it, they were finished and not one photo was taken. 

So I'm sharing just a few of my favorites, because I didn't take photos of the not so favorite.

Rice Krispie Donuts!

Oh No!  I missed national donut day.  I miss national donut day every year... I guess I've really only missed it the last couple of years, before then, I didn't even know national donut day existed.  I decided to celebrate now, if I wait until next year, chances are I'll miss it again.  I mean, do people put it in their calendar?  How do they remember?
 
I know I'll remember these donuts and I hope you do too, it's never too late to celebrate.  Not just a donut, a donut to celebrate the Fourth of July!

Get That Boom Boom Pow!

I can't wait to show you the cookie platter I created for the Fourth of July.  I was all like, oh I just love it and it totally looks like a firecracker.  Then my hubby came home and burst my firecracker bubble. I won't even tell you what he thought it was.  Quickly I sent the photo to a few family members, hoping they would reassure me they looked like firecracker cookies.  They got it right.  So on with the post.
