Happy Spring! I'm saying that out loud in hopes that it will come true. It didn't feel like spring when I walked the dog this morning in sub-zero wind chills. The snow crunched under my feet and the wind against my forehead caused a brain freeze - the kind that only feels good when you're drinking a slushee on a really hot day. They say that today is the coldest start to spring here in almost 50 years. It might not seem likely at the moment, but somewhere in the back of my mind, I know that real spring will eventually arrive!
In Atlanta, March is always marked by the blooming of the daffodils. Since the weather up here wasn't cooperating, I did my best to re-create spring for Arielle's birthday brunch. I brought in my own spring flowers, and bagged up flower cookies for take home treats.
I love how simple these cookies are.
Poured Cookie Icing adds a pop of color and candy melts dot the centers.
