I just wanted to pop in and tell you that I made some cookies for the Share our Strength bakesale!


The sale will be at the Midtown Global Market in Minneapolis from 11:00 to 4:00 on Saturday.


I will be stopping by with all my little ones to donate these cookies!


These are my favorite sugar cookies with crusting buttercream roses. (recipe coming soon!)

You’ve seen it a million times… and now you get to see it in pastel rainbow cookies too.

I’m sorry.  I cant help myself.


I do hope you will stop by and lend some support to the cause… maybe even say hi to the frantic lady with the screaming baby. (that would be me)

If you cant make it, at least try and make yourself some of these yummy cookies!

Share with your friends!

  1. Beautiful, can’t wait for the buttercream recipe. I’ve been thinking about having a bake sale (for Share our Strength) sometime in the near future and you have just inspired me tremendously. Thanks for sharing, God bless!

  2. Absolutely PERFECT. I have been using that issue on my cupcakes but for some silly reason I had not thought of the cookie idea. (That is why you are the smart one) 🙂
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. they are awesome! i tried your rose cake for my sister’s birthday and it came out pretty nice (not as nice as yours). I can’t wait to try these!

  4. Would you mind posting your buttercream frosting shortly. I am in hopes to make these for my son’s graduation on Thursday.

  5. I’m anxious for the frosting recipe as these would be perfect to accent the dessert table at my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary party in a few weeks. Do you think these would freeze well?
