~A Picket Fence Cookie~

Tuesday, December 20, 2011




 I don't know about you but I haven't done all my Christmas shopping yet, I'm going out tonight to deliver some cookies and then off to the stores full of people. Yesterday I almost got run over by a  cart in the Grocery store so I'm hoping I'll make it home safely today. Wish me luck.

I live in a farm country with plentiful fences around and during Christmas property owners decorate their fences with fresh garlands, wreaths or red bows in a very festive style. This cookie was specifically designed  for my guest post  at  At The Picket Fence.
