Mmmm, mmmm good



Bet your wondering what these things are. Well they are the dough for some yummy cookies. If you want the recipe you need to go see Cookie Girl here.

Each week she posts a new recipe for us to try at home. I have to say my family has been quite pleased. In fact my BIL was over wondering where the cookies were. He is over here regularly raiding the cookie jar. Well now he has something to raid. The boys, my nephew included are eager to see what the "Cookie of the Week" is. In fact my boys regularly ask when the new recipe is going to be posted.



So here they are, my Spring Chicks. Aren't they cute? I altered the frosting a bit, I didn't have any meringue powder so I made butter cream frosting instead and I have to say it turned out well. I also don't have one of those fancy frosting bags with all the different tips so I just used a sandwich bag and cut one of the corner's off. Sometimes it's all about improvising to get the same or similar results.

So go see Cookie Girl and get the recipe if you want some for yourself.
