The Posts of Christmas Cookies Past

Happy, happy holidays!

Since I noticed other bloggers and online magazines have been posting photos of my Christmas treats, which I have randomly found, I thought I better post them myself! I haven’t started baking in earnest yet so I’m going to visit The Posts of Christmas Cookies Past!

Probably the most fun and interactive cookies I’ve made were the Shake-able Snow Globes Cookies.

These White Chocolate Dipped Spritz Cookies are dipped and delish and make fun little packages to hand out!

The Peppermint Decorated Sugar Cookies are easier to make than they look. I think you’ll like the DIY tutorial and even an easy way to wrap them up.

Naughty n’ Nice Gingerbread Men

Hello! This post might be a fine how-do-you-do after a five month blogging break but I realized something – I’ve never gave these spicy guys their own post page last year and like a good mother who loves all her baked children equally, I just had to. Thank you for indulging me. And of course, properly dressed for dinner. Carry On and Happy Holidays! SHARE THIS POST:

Red, White & Blue Patriotic Meringue Heart Cookies

After two weeks of back-to-back political conventions, I’m convinced of the origins of global warming but no matter which candidate actually warms the cockles of your heart we can all come together and agree that meringues are delicious, can’t we? I made these tri-colored meringue hearts for our 4th of July celebrations but thought they would also be the perfect apolitical treat while still showing our patriotic pride. If you’ve been following my blog for the past seven years (!)… [Read More]

Mason Jar Decorated Cookies With Fondant Flowers

June was such a busy month. One that included travel, a memorable birthday get-away celebration and a vineyard wedding. When you think of an elegant country wedding what comes to mind?  For me, it’s Mason jars overflowing with wild flowers! What turned out very nice was that the table centerpieces were Mason jars filled with flowers too. A very personalized touch I added was to paint on a “chalkboard tag” with the bride and groom’s new monogram.  Of course, the… [Read More]

Decorated Sailboat Cookies For A Baby Shower

It seems like baby boys are making their debut in earnest! My last post was all about welcoming a baby boy with a Meet n’ Greet Party and this week I navigated into the waters of making decorated sailboat cookies for another little guy’s baby shower who is soon to arrive!  Such happy occasions! This post isn’t a full step-by-pictoral-step because you’d be scrolling till the tide came in but if you like cookie decorating read on because I do… [Read More]

A Party To Welcome A Sweet Baby Boy

Hello! If you’ve been following me on SweetsToImpress Instagram, you’ve seen pics here and there of the dessert party I created for my great-nephew’s Meet n’ Greet.  I not only had the fun of making all the desserts for the table but I also made the decorations!  I’ve been a very busy great-auntie for weeks but I was also very organized which was a tremendous help in not becoming too stressed to get-it-all-done. Since my niece had no preference for… [Read More]

Champagne Glass Cookies

Happy spring! I hope April is turning out beautifully for you. I thought I’d share with you a couple cookie designs I made for a bridal shower a few weeks before the Easter bunny left us with the flu!  We much rather preferred chocolate bunnies left for us but apparently he didn’t get the memo!  Bad bunny!! While watching re-runs of Celtic Thunder that seemed to always be on PBS that made me feel like a middle-aged groupie that you… [Read More]

Eggs “Bunnydict” For Easter Brunch

Are you an Easter brunch type of person or the 2:00 PM lunch-ish kind of person?  Either way, I’ve got a cute idea for a take on Eggs Benedict that I’m calling “Eggs Bunnydict” and it can be made ahead, reheated and assembled just before serving. This idea came to me because I had once spent hours poaching eggs for brunch and then everyone called in sick and no one came. Although you can cook poached eggs the day before… [Read More]

Marbled Fondant Cakes, Walks Around The Lake, Margaritas, A Birthday and A Baby Shower…

Hi there! Did you miss me? I hope you did just a little. There isn’t anyone that I know of who didn’t have a bit of a hitch in their giddy-up fresh out of the new year gate and here it is March already! Hard to believe. I’ve been a busy baking bee honing my cake decorating skills, among other things. As you know, I love Instagram and often I’ll post photos there that don’t necessarily have an entire blog… [Read More]
