the cookie project

I guess it pays to practice baking cookies especially this time of the year. I had to make 8 dozen cookies and planning for their presentation was a pain. But I had so much fun even with a mangled finger (check last post). This is the cookie project I thought would never end!
A twist on classic shortbread
All wrapped and ready to go =)
Sorry, I can't get enough. I love these wrapped packages!
And of course, I had to make some decorated sugar cookies as well
This came about by accident. I had tinted cookie doughs without really planning what to do with them. I had these clear boxes and I thought, what better way to pack them than stacking them into a tree-like (more like cake-like) form. They are also less sweet than the other batch of sugar cookies I made so the cream cheese frosting in between was just perfect.
Again, excuse my love for good packaging. Won't these look cute as wedding favours?? Imagine them in white, or better yet, pink and chocolate =)
After much deliberation, here's the final Thomas the tank engine invites in cream-coloured lined linen envelopes.
