A little fun on a whim

I love taking basic ideas and adding just a little creativity to them. And since my husband always complains that I bake for everybody and feed him nothing but the leftover imperfections, I decided today was his lucky day. Ok, well the truth is, I really was baking the cookies for the children for an after school snack but I screwed up the recipe and had to double it so I could even out the overdose of one of the ingredients…but he doesn’t have to know that!!
So, since I had more chocolate chip cookies than I had planned and my husband loves cookies, or any dessert for that matter, I decided to make the abundance of cookies look a little festive. Instead of just dumping the cookies in a ziploc and storing them, I displayed them on a cake stand, poured 2 glasses of wine, cut a few flowers from my garden…which is rapidly growing thanks to the 40 days of rain it feels like we have been having…and poof…a creative little display for when he came home at 8:30pm.
