Bird’s Nest Cookies

Martha Stewart’s Bird’s Nest Cookies

I meant to post this when I made these at Easter time, but life got in the way…

Here we have crumbly, buttery chocolate cookies, spread with whipped ganache:



And topped with coconut and jelly beans to create these springtime treats:

Cake recipe from Confetti Cakes for Kids

I made this cake for my son’s 4th birthday party, which had a superhero theme!  He couldn’t decide which superhero he wanted to grace the cake, so I just included all of his favorites…apologies to any Marvel/DC purists.


Spiced Sugar Cookies

McCormick’s Spiced Sugar Cookies

This recipe is a fall twist on traditional sugar cookies, with an infusion of cinnamon and nutmeg in the dough.  I would have preferred them a little spicier though–try doubling the spices if you’re looking for that spicy punch.
