Why not surprise someone sweet with sweets?

It’s almost spring up here in the frozen north. Winter lasts from November to April, and if it wasn’t for skiing, I would be pretty grumpy for 6 months.

I think it’s time to bake some cookies, or muffins and package them up in cute, handmade baskets to brighten up the week. Here’s a great tutorial for a basket made from scrapbook paper and ribbon from a blog called And Then She Made. It’s really easy, and so pretty. You could put a different kind of cookie or candy in each section. These would also make great for May Day baskets to hang on neighbors doors.

Let me know what you’re baking this week. I think lemon cookies are on the menu at our house! I’ll post the recipe if they’re as good as they look in the recipe book.

  2. My son and I have been making cookies and leaving them on the doorsteps of neighbors during the 12 Days of Ridvan (April 21-May 2). The first batch was oatmeal chocolate-chip with dried cranberries, and we put them in colorful paper boxes. We are going to bake some more this afternoon for our second round of deliveries. It is a fun springtime way to tell our neighbors how much we appreciate them.
