Autumn Halloween 2010 261


Our Halloween decor has been safely packed away and replaced with Thanksgiving Pilgrims, cornucopias and turkeys. I've been perusing my recipes, old and new, for our Thanksgiving feast only a few short weeks away.

My sweet friend Kathy shared with me her famous sugar cookie recipe. Not only are they tasty, they pop easily in your mouth as your passing by the island :) In the past few weeks I've made two batches of these delicious delicacies. I made a platter for an event I had to attend, and took some to school to share with my teaching staff.

These little acorns are so sweet packaged in cellophane bags and tied with festive ribbon to share with your friends. I'd love to show you a picture but Bentley was a little hungry and nibbled on the desktop power source. Of course this is the computer that has all my photos and because he is so talented, he managed to do this while my husband is on travel and I don't handle technology issues {as you already know.} So for now, you'll just have to take my word for it :)

Have a fabulous fall weekend ~ anything fun on your docket?

I have this cookie cutter, and I think you've inspired me to get busy making some little Thanksgiving treats!

These are really cute. I love anything with acorns...and decorated cookies are even better. I have the worst luck making sugar cookies. They brake or they stick to the pan. I have pretty much given up. But these make me want to start looking for an acorn shaped cookie cutter!

oh those are so cute! You could definitely use the blessing tree in your classroom I think. Have the kids write what they are thankful for :) Good lesson :)

They turned out so cute, Jo! I'm glad you posted a photo so I could see the finished product. I'm delighted you enjoyed them.

Perhaps we could make a time to visit next week....Dan returns tomorrow night at 8pm! Kids in jammies and I will be picking him up for a happy reunion. I'll email you when I get the laptop back (happy reunion there too!) and we can see when our lives match up for a chat...until then, have a wonderful weekend!
