My niece turned 1 year-old! How time flies! Isn’t she precious? My sister planned a Hello Kitty themed birthday party.  The color theme was of course pink and white.  There were plenty of finger foods, desserts, and games for the kids. So fun!

 

Linzer Cookies for Mother’s Day

I usually like to hand make something when it comes giving gifts.  This year for Mother’s Day, I baked some linzer cookies for my mom.  Linzer cookies are festive and they can work for a variety of occasions.  Sur La Table sells mini cookie cutters that you can use to mix and match shapes.  I made these into a “heart within a heart” shape that’s also very valentine’s day-like.  I used this recipe and basically had all the ingredients already.  The cookie turned out slightly crisp and crumbly.  I would suggest baking and assembling the day you plan to serve the cookies.
