Before I type anything else - I just wanted to thank all of you who left such sweet comments about my mention in the UK times best design bloggers list. Thank you so much!
So back to the topic of my post: COOKIIIIEEESSS!
And yes, Im saying that in my best cookie monsters impersonation.
Remember the cookie party exchange invitations I made for a friend? I was also an invited guest so the pressure was on. Have I mentioned I can't seem to make a decent cookie to save my life?
But when I saw plum jam sitting on the shelf of the Bedford Cheese Shop, I had an idea: Sugarplum Shortbreads!
Using some leftover aqua boxes from another project, I padded the box with a bit of pink shred (homemade in the shredder). Two short stacks of cookies went into cupcake liners before the box was closed up.
A custom label and a bit of striped ribbon finished the presentation.
Half the boxes got the purse treatment. The other half got a more streamlined label over ribbon look.
Despite my complete lack of skills in the cookie department, these are really tasty. Too bad I didn't keep a box for myself! If you want to try your hand at them, here is the recipe.
