Candy Cookies

We love going out to eat cookies, ice cream and other fun desserts, but it can get a bit expensive. It is a nice treat to go out once in a while, but when we can stay home it is definitely more cost effective.

My kids love getting cookies with candy on top so I decided to make a batch of shortbread cookies and cut them out using the biggest circle cookie cutter I have. (4" across). Then I pressed candy coated chocolate on top of them before baking.

They were really easy to make and the kids loved them! These would also make great party favors or party treats.

Garden Pictures

The summer season is usually busy, but always fun. I don't bake as many goodies during the summer since there is a lot of yard work to do, so I thought I would share some pictures from my garden.

I have so many things growing, including trees. berry bushes, tiger lilies and more. However, these two-toned peonies are my favorite.

What keeps you busy during the summer? Feel free to comment!
