~SIMPLY YUMMEEE TREATS~
Early this morning my Miss K and I baked up a big ol' bunch of yummeeee White Chocolate and Almond Cookies for a friend of mine recently diagnosed with breast cancer. We had such a wonderful
time mixing and baking and
I snapped away like a
Well...I accidentally deleted ALL the pictures while tranferring them from my camera to my computer. Wahhhh... I'm just SICK! :( Tomorrow we will bake more JUST so I can retake new pictures!
Anyway...here is a little glimpse of the cookies we packaged up for Miss Becky! We started off with this:
~A SIMPLE PAINTED PINK BOX~
~ADDED A VINTAGE PAPER DOILY TO THE TOP~
This sweet garage sale find was for a package of 80 count 8" paper doilies and they cost me ten cents! The bonus was they were already gently aged...no "paper-baking" needed!
~PLACED CELLO WRAPPED COOKIES INSIDE~
~TOP DECORATED w/ FLOWERS FROM MICHAELS~
(These were a great and inexpensive find!!!!)
~A HEART LOCKET and RAYON RIBBON~
Simple and sweet and not a lot of money!!!
~MY MISS K~
(Shame on you, Nana! Be MORE CAREFUL!)
The cookie recipe is easy! I used the one on the back of Nestle's Premier White Morsals (Chips) and substituted almond extract for the vanilla and added 1/2 cup of sliced almonds to the mix. Easy Peasy!
Here's a fabulous tip for you!
Want your cookies to be super fabulous without totally flattening out while baking? The recipe I used called for all butter~ If you use half butter and half shortening in your cookie recipe they will be absolutely 2die4 (no pun intended!). Try it...you'll see!
I'm off to sulk some more. Ugh!
Love to you...
