Cookie Day 2014

Friends, this is really happening!  The most wonderful day of the year is here, and that is COOKIE DAY @)!$!  Oops I mean, 2014!

Who candied that orange peel?  I did.

Oh who again?


Caramel snaps are like ginger snaps but with caramel instead of molasses.  Salted caramel.

Cupcakes on cookie day?  Of course!

Yes I do use my kids' plastic fish bowls for baking purposes.

Chill out, dough!  Time to chill out.

Check out those no-fade cupcake wrappers!  They did not fade.

Pignolis are Italian cookies with almond paste centers, meringue exteriors, and crusted with pine nuts.

Chocolate orange cupcakes.


And Piles.

Soup break!  Even cookie bakers need to eat lunch.

Finished plate!  By that time the light had failed.  Best subjects get the worst pictures.

Want some?

I'm ready to celebrate cookie day, I certainly don't want to miss out. I love the chocolate cupcakes. Mind blowing and so pretty. There's nothing better than receiving a tray of homemade cookies near Christmas that has this level of variety!
