Day 4.... Cookie Monster

 Let me say FIRST, that NOT ALL CHERA's CHOCOLATE COVERED FEBRUARY  will be in PINK /RED.... Traditional Valentine colors.. ok?  With that stated, I feel confident that even if you aren't crazy about the color cardstock you will still love the items.... so lets get on with it.

I HAVE COOKIES TODAY!!!! A COOKIE BOX that will hold a DOZEN (bakers dozen even) COOKIES.. but since I have made "snack size" cookies, I fit about 15 in here. Anyone who has teens understand that if you want cookies to last more than 'fresh out of the oven' you make them smaller than normal and which would produce more.   I used this tutorial from Natasha Zandbergen, SU! Canada Demo. Its super easy and fun! Go ahead give it a shot.

Instructions at  Cookie box by Natasha
 This is going south ... to a fellow who with just a touch of feminine will be alright with getting this.  .. of course its loaded with Cowboy Cookies * ... who wouldn't want it?   

Recipe for Cowboy Cookies is  here .

being a baker, gotta love it. Cookies leave this house with great regularity, as do muffins and bread. Great idea and will be greeted with huge smiles at the other end am sure.

I can't get cookies to last out of the oven to cool let alone place into a cute box. I have 2 teenage boys who love cookies and come running when I make them. Their friends will even smell them in the air and drive over to make sure they are edible!!
I will definately try to make the box and put something yummy inside for my friends at work! Thanks so much for the idea!

Wanda said...

Great box girl. Love it. But can you share the "cowboy cookies" recipe with us?

Erin said...

That is an adorable way to deliver cookies! In my old neighborhood my neighbor Marian always brought cookies over covered in tin foil. I should make up some boxes for her as a gift, she would love to have a beautiful package for her home baked goodies. Thanks for sharing.

Ret said...

So often we bake up something and have enough to send over to a neighbor and I HATE putting them in a blah baggie. This is perfect!!! Really puts that *extra something* in the gift. I really like the box, thank you!! and thanks for the opportunity to win some blog candy!
