Linderhof


Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas


Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Up to My Knees In Bunnies and Chickies


What has become a Holy Week tradition
the making of hundreds and hundreds  of cutout cookies
As a fundraiser for PEO
This year's count -- 600


Trays and trays of cookies
Some baked and uniced
Some iced and undecorated
Some decorated and ready to bag

It's a long process for the icing has to dry
before the cookies can be decorated 
And the decorations need to dry before the cookies can be bagged


The dining room was the cookie factory


A tray of bunnies ready to be bagged


 But I still take time for tea . . . 
It's restorative
My tea time treat?
The culls -- I'm also in charge of Quality Control!


Bunnies all sacked and ready to be delivered


A pan of chicks ready for their new owners!


The dining room table full of pans of chicks and bunnies!

This is the second year
It's now a tradition!

I'm joining Michael at Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday.

Martha, I'd be buying lots of bags of cookies if I lived near by. What a great idea, but an amazing amount of work. 600 bags of cookies ~ wow!
Happy Easter!
