i am so excited!
today my dear friend jessica is hosting her year anniversary pintertest kitchen.
now listen, i don't have a pinterest, but that didn't stop me. i have been waiting to participate.
so i just saved recipes that i've seen floating around the world wide webs and finally decided on one.
festy of etsy loves will be back tomorrow with a special edition.
but today...today is all about lesley's iced thumbprint cookies.
we have this cookie shop here in town that makes these delightful thumbprint cookies.
so this recipe kept standing out to me! and while they didn't taste just like them, they are for sure keepers.
scott took them to bible study last night and all the guys asked if i would make them again.
now. please go check out lesley's lovely pictures.
i am not photographer; lesley take beautiful shots of her food.
and this recipe is HER recipe. and i guarantee you that mine would never, ever compete with hers!
you can find all the ingredients here.
these cookies were really a piece of cake.
the hardest part for me was the rolling and the thumb-printing and even that was easy.
you just mix your ingredients, and then you form a disc like shown below.
wrap it in plastic wrap and pop it in the fridge for an hour.
then you preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
and roll those little guys up and press your thumb on top.
then you roll the sides in sprinkles.
i chose chocolate sprinkles to make a fallish looking cookie.
next time i will measure out my spoonfuls so that they are all the same size.
fail on my part.
once you've followed lesley's directions and they've cooled off, you just fill the center with your icing.
let them set for 6-8 hours and you've got yourself a famous lesley thumbprint cookie.
i love how versatile these are. you can make them for any holiday or occasion.
christmas, valentine's day, baby shower, bridal shower, wedding favor, or just a treat for a friend.
and this is what happens when you are busy mixing and you leave your daughter in her bumbo on the floor.
your son finds a cat sticker sent from sneaky hannah (i have a slight dislike of cats) and continues to plaster it all over his sister. every time i looked over, it was on another part of her face or arms.
if you look close enough, you can see a single tear on her cheek from the torture.
here is the FUN part.
i would highly advise you to link up your pintertest ideas up over at jessica's blog today!
she is having a big birthday bash for the first anniversary of pintertest kitchen!!
and psssssstttt...word on the street is that there is a HUGE giveaway and that i just might be giving away your choice of print! go check it out.
thanks for hosting this fantastic par-tay, jessica!
