You know that ‘go to’ thing? The one that is tried and true that you can count on every time? It is the appetizer that is oh so good; that main dish you serve at dinner parties that never fails, tastes great and everyone likes; and that scrumptious dessert you have made dozens of times that your guests rave about. It is comforting to know there are things we can rely on. That is how I feel about this simple cookie design using the blossom cutter. It is easy and efficient and looks good in any color.
I had a request to make cookies for the Girl Scout Daisies and soon-to-be Brownies. Being a bit short on time, this had to be the design. Little girls love polka dots and the teal / lavender color combo is popular among the young set. These cookies were for the last gathering of the Daisies after two years, little girls who entered the first level of Girls Scouts as Daisies in Kindergarten at age 5, and now at age 7 are rising second graders. They enjoyed fun outings like visiting a firehouse, the ballet, yoga, ice skating and learned money management when shopping the school’s Christmas bazaar. They also sent handwritten letters to President Obama to save the endangered sea turtles. Now it is time to trade in their blue vests and daisy petal badges and become Brownies, where they will experience new adventures. Somehow I think my next gig may be for Fudge Walnut Brownies or Cheesecake Brownies.Blossom Shortbread Cookies
