As you know, here at A Spoonful of Sugar Headquarters, there is always a steady supply of sweet treats. Sarah loves nothing more than pottering around the kitchen on the weekend, baking fresh treats for us to enjoy. We try and share the love by giving gifts of home baked treats to family and friends. In this busy world of ours, freshly baked treats are always appreciated.
This week Sarah made up a batch of Vanilla Chocolate Butter Cookies using this recipe from Martha Stewart. The cookies are delicious, with a buttery shortbread texture. They are light and crisp, and go perfectly with a lovely cup of tea. The recipe yielded 50+ cookies, so there were plenty left to share.
To package the cookies, we stacked them in baking cups inside a cardboard loaf pan. They were covered with some printed waxed paper (available from Wonderland Room) and sealed with Japanese masking tape. They were gift wrapped with clear cellophane and tied with a bow.
