APPLE COOKIES/ Little Green Apples



There was an apple tree in a clearing in our neighborhood and as a little girl my friend, Mary and I would climb that tree. We would sit on a sturdy branch for hours talking and giggling as little girls do. This tree had lots and lots of little green apples. We would eat one apple after another not because we were hungry but because we thought it was cool they were free!

Today I demonstrate how to simply add sanding sugar to a decorated cookie to create a sparkly effect. Come see!
