Virtual Cookie Exchange Blog Hop and Gifts For You

Merry Christmas
and
Welcome to the Sticks!



I'm so happy to be sharing cookie recipes with everyone.

 is absolutely brilliant to create this virtual cookie exchange blog hop every year.

I'm not much of a baker.
  (Now you are wondering why you are here.  lol)

 I really enjoy it, but to be honest I'd rather be sewing.

That's why I'm sharing my cookie recipe 
and

I'm sharing some new quilt blocks too.




First, my cookie recipe is my go to when it comes to cut cookies. 
 I'm not a big sugar cookie fan but I DO love a good peanut butter cookie.  


When I make these, everyone is always asking for the recipe.
So here it is.  It's a JPG file so just right click on it to save it.



The icing on these little guys is super sweet, but the peanut butter cookies complement it nicely.


When this hop was announced, I did what I love and that is to
design quilt blocks.

What fun those potholders are! I really like the one with the cookie with a bite out of the head. =) Thanks for sharing those patterns, and for the great idea to make gingerbread cookies out of some other dough! This looks perfect.

Ooops, I didn't know about the favorite family tradition answer! So sorry, just count one of these comments. I honestly think my favorite when the boys were little was cookie day - lots of kinds of cookies. Little guy standing on a chair to mix. Big guy trying not to get burned by the oven, and sneaking bites of dough. Memories like that are so great!

Lynne Stucke said...

I love the bite taken out of your gingerbread man! Such an original touch!

Amy said...

Just too cute, Carla. Love the poor gingerbread man.

thatfabricfeeling.com said...

Sorry if I already left a comment but I couldn't find it here and don't recall. Too many quilting hours are going to my head. I love that you took the plunge and had a bite taken out of the gingerbread's head. i would have been afraid to cut off that portion of him but you raised the humor! Clever and so fun! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity. I'm kind of addicted to FQS...and can always find stuff to buy. elanagoldberg5@gmail.com
