Last month I signed up for a decorated cookie swap. It was my first time participating. Each cookie decorator was to mail set of 4 + cookies to the assigned recipient.Nobody knew who is making cookies for whom, and so it was all a big surprise.
I was little nervous as having to witness previous Cookie Swaps, bar was set high.
I wanted to make something different, something that wouldn’t be so much me, you know I wanted to get away from my traditional way of decorating. I’ve been trying to simplify my cookie decorating for a while now, biting my tongue at times and steering away from adding another dot or a swirl.
Asya and few other ladies moderated the whole thing and set it up. You may remember Asya from last year, she shared her mom’s recipe for delicious Barbara’s Apple Cinnamon Muffins.
Thank you for taking the time to make the swap possible.
Anyway cookies I made were Honey Cookies, they traveled all the way to Australia,

I made Handyman Tool Cookies! With Father’s Day just around the corner I wanted to make something my day would love. Tools! It seems men in my life always need new tools. One hand saw simply won’t cut it. But who am I to judge? I own 1000 cutters. So to all of you who…
Chocolate Ganache Cream Cheese Frosting combines 2 favorites. Delicious rich ganache and creamy slightly tangy cream cheese frosting. Both are delicious on its own. And combined they are divine. Let me show you how to make it.
My second batch of soft pretzels turned out to be way better than the first one.WHY? I dipped them in water-baking soda solution before baking.
