It’s that time of year again! Thanksgiving always serves as my ‘slow’ transition into the heavy workload of the holiday season. This year we’re doing a market for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, so it’s not exactly a ‘slow’ transition. Just check out our freezer!
The more impressive part of all that dough? I made it myself! Usually Aaron makes all the cookie dough, but I was feeling ambitious and helpful! That picture was taken before I was done too – there were a couple batches of mint-chip dough that were made as well!
This year I struggled a little with what to offer for thanksgiving cookies. We still did the standard turkey and leaves sets that we’ve done prior, but I wanted to do something different. In my random brainstorming process I started to write down the sort of things that I was thankful for.
I wish I had taken a picture of everything I scribbled on the paper – it included the basics like family, health, friends, career, etc.
And then I wrote down ‘cookies’ in the only space that was left, near the top of the paper. When I looked back down, I could have sworn that the phrase I had actually written on the page was “What are you thankful for cookies”
That kicked off a lightbulb in my head that result in these simple and pretty cookies:
Blank white leaf cookies, with a pretty plaque in the center that read “I am Thankful for”. I included a pen for writing, packaged them up neatly in my BRP box shop boxes and tah dah!
I seriously think these are my favorite cookies to date. I just wish I could see what EVERYONE writes on theirs!
In other news – here’s a sampling of what was packed up to go to the market. I definitely am thankful for cookies this year, among many, many other things!
