They can be tough to spot lumbering through the grass but I hear it's good luck to find one in your yard.

Oh man is there a lot going on here. Those cupcakes alone look light and moist and delightful and then you go and pile on some pretty, fluffy, buttery icing mmmmmmm. And THEN you make little heart cookies and you ice them BUT you use MORE icing to make them all fancy and swirly and amazing. Then you PUT IT ON THE CUPCAKE! I'm so exhausted. I can't eat. I need a nap.

If socks really did have faces, what do you think they'd want to talk about?

Now that I'm getting older and slowing down a little (LIES!) and not raging six nights a week like I once did, I can imagine eating bright green donuts shaped like sweet little bears without feeling queasy in the least. There was a time when even the hint of breakfast would send me wretching. I'm happy to be able to appreciate the cuteness and whimsy of green icing.

Red and white do make a fantastic combo, don't they? And snowflakes are so satisfying in their symmetry and fragility. Basically, winter is magic, and the buttery, spicy delicious treats we get to indulge in without any guilt make the holidays rich. Bring on the cookies, I'm ready!

Houndstooth is such a hot trend right now. Gaga wore nothing but houndstooth on The View recently, I just saw an amazing couch covered in it the other day. These cookies are a dream come true.
