Candy Corn -

Yesterday I cut out some cookies for a Fall Party that we have coming up and with the left over dough I just cut strips and then triangles, baked them 10 minutes and then dipped them in candy coating. The tips in white, then brushed on the orange in the middle (it didn't turn out too neat but then I thought - "Oh well, people are just going to eat them so...") then dipped the yellow bottoms. They actually taste sort of like candy corns.

My friend, Sue, who lives in Malaga, Spain, emailed the other day and asked me to make some tool cookies for her son who is graduating this weekend. 
Congratulations, Andy!

My VW Restoration Cookies-

I drew on the first 6 then thought "am I or am I not an artist? I can draw with frosting!" 
First I did the grey bumpers {x 75 cookies}
 Then I did the black on the tires
and the white wall and windows{all x 75 cookies}
Stopped to eat lunch with Bryan. This is the apple bbq brisket sandwich that is on this blog under other recipes. You really should take the time to make it! Very good sandwich.
 Car color on car and tires and a little grey dot in the middle of each tire.
 Black and grey details added to finish the cars.
 All 75 cars done and drying. 
They are now packaged up and ready for the reveal party on Thursday at the church during staff lunch.

True Grit Cookies...

Our friends, Chan and Brenda, have a HUGE outdoor movie screen in their backyard. Every year they have outdoor movies. This summer was just too hot to do any so finally, this Sunday night, they are showing True Grit. Everyone brings snacks and chairs and it is such a fun time. So of course I had to make True Grit cookies. AND my sister, Jenny, had just given me a hat cookie cutter so...Thanks, Jen.

Happy Baking,
