I have been having an amazing time in New Orleans over the last few days, can NOT wait to share all of my delicious photos with you soon!  In the meantime…..

It has been so much fun seeing my stuffed cookies being made around the web. It makes me smile every single time my readers send me photos on Facebook of their baked goods.  While I am still in New Orleans I thought it would be fun to post all of my stuffed cookies in the order I created them. How fun would it be to make all of these and put in a basket for your Dads for Father’s Day?!  I might just have to do that!!
