This is the beginning of Year 7 of my blog and post 224. It all began back in January 2013 with my first post entitled
I Spy Cookies, and these are the first words published …

You know that look when someone spots a platter of cookies and all they have to do is pick one up and take a bite? You know that look when their eyes light up and the edge of their mouth turns up? You know that look that precedes the smile just before the first taste of a cookie? 

In a blog post later that year, I wrote about how we first fell in love with cookies here

Who wants cookies? I hear me, me, me! We fell in love with them as toddlers when we ate our first cookie that fit so perfectly in our tiny hands. Then, we asked for another and another. We’ve been hooked ever since! 

Since then, hopefully, my cookie decorating and photography skills have improved a bit. As I begin this year, I have lots of new ideas for cookies and cutters yet to be used. Check out cookie blog posts from the very beginning at the Index Page and the Archives in the right column.

Follow along and stay tuned ...

These Bambi cookies were a challenge to roll out and flouring the cutter for every cookie was essential to loosen the legs from the cutter. I kept the design simple for these cute cookies made for a special baby girl.

  1. Wow! I've enjoyed your cookies since subscribing two years ago. I need to visit your earlier cookie tutorials. I'm looking forward to your next creation! Stacey

  2. Very sweet cookies and pretty color. Keep the tutorials coming. Suzy

  3. These are cute cookies and I can see how the legs could be tricky to roll out. Those little feet cookies are too cute!

    1. I had to push the dough out of the cutter when it came to the skinny legs of the reindeer. The feet cookies are one of my favorites. Have a nice day. Joan

  4. Your cookies are always so pretty! I love the baby duck cookies!

    1. Thank you, Melissa. The duck cookies are one of my favorites too as the wet-on-wet roses is one of my favorite techniques to decorate cookies. Have a nice day.
