DIAMOND COOKIES/ Ah Love!



It’s everywhere! Or at least it should be. We normally think of romantic love when the word L-O-V-E comes to mind, but what is greater than a parent’s love for a child. It is never-ending and the most enduring form of love. Parents ... those special persons who teach, guide, forgive and love no matter what. Love of siblings ranks up there too. They share our DNA, the playmates with whom we squabbled from toddler through teen years. They know us best, hide our deepest secrets and stand up for us against the bullies. Siblings … they may tend to be unappreciated yet are always there in the tough times. Grandparents ... who dote on us and enlighten with family stories. Aunts, uncles, cousins ... forever friends with whom we share a tight bond. Nieces and nephews ... who we love like our own. Love of friends and neighbors. Then the most personal … the love of our life. A love that is overtly expressed in the form of a ring signifying eternal love.

Which brings me to this week’s cookie. What could be sweeter than sugar-coated diamonds. These are perfect for wedding, bridal shower or proposal.

    1. Mam, Thank you! So funny that you mention the superhero shield. There are Superman cookies using this cutter online and other neat designs. I too like the pale pink color. Thanks for dropping by.
