Another reason, another season, for making cookies.

Do you know what makes delicious and beautiful dye-free icing?

Freeze-dried strawberries! I pulverized them in the blender and the bright red powder made a pretty pink icing with a nice tangy taste.

Do you know what doesn't make very good sugar cookies?

A shortbread cookie recipe! Whoops. Well, they're still good.

  2. Any time you can lick a beater like that, it's a win in my book! It sounds delicious...and looks so fun! Way to go!

    1. Lennon did not want anything to do with that beater!!! He kep saying, "Yucky! No like it". He finally took one tiny taste and he was convinced.

    1. Awesome. We didn't freeze dry them ourselves- I don't even know how someone would do that. We bough some from a store here that has some more natural food options. I'll definitely be doing it again.
