Every year, I bake cookies for our PEO Chapter's fundraiser
Monday, I make the dough
(for it needs to be refrigerated)
Tuesday, I bake the cookies
This year over 700 cutout cookies
Bunnies and chicks
Then they get frosted . . .
Then they get decorated -- hand painted each and every one!
After they're dry, six is put into a cello bag and tied with a ribbon
Today, other club members joined me at Linderhof as we put
all of the cookies into cello bags and tied them with a ribbon
It takes many hands to make easy work of packaging over 100 bags of cookies
And tie them each with a bow!
Tradition has now become, after they're all packaged
we have Hot Cross Buns and coffee
Not buns made by me, but purchased from All Saints Church in Nevada, Missouri
this is the third year and now that is a tradition!
After they left . . .
It was good to get my dining room back again!
And this afternoon . . .
I had another hot cross bun with my afternoon tea
Another tradition and a tradition that goes way back --
the hot cross bun for Good Friday Tea
Those are darling cookies! What did you use for painting the grass? Thanks. Barbara in St Paul ( I always enjoy hearing about your adventures when you're up this way to visit your daughter!)
Barbara -- I use food coloring pens for all of the details. Think of an edible sharpie! LOL! We enjoy The Cities -- we think they're pretty amazing! I'll be up in May -- would you be up for a meeting -- email me -- my address is on the right side of the blog.
I applaud you ...just beautiful
