Gold Star for You, Grad!

graduation cookies ::: bake at 350 blog
Whether you're celebrating a Kindergarten or high school graduation, I have just the cookies for you! Heck, you moms out there are graduating from another year of packing lunches...and THAT deserves cookies!  Can I get an Amen?!?

Super simple to make, these cookies are a little special with the addition of gold...which really pops against the dark chocolate cookie.

Here's to celebrating gold stars, a school year finished, and new possibilities on the horizon!

  13. Suppose you created a group called Pals that included your
    best friends. This article lists the most promising and thought provoking tech gadgets available for under $100.
    One of the biggest changes is the fact that Apple has removed the permanent storage (hard drive)
    from the device.

  15. So totally rad you are over at Parade, Bridget! (Forgive me for not knowing? Still catching up with blog reading this weekend and it is now Midnight here! Anyway, congrats on the gig!) Such a great tutorial you put together. I have such fond memories of working with gold luster dust and using vodka as the carrier (learned this from Rose Levy Beranbaum, of course!). Did a large gingerbread Cathedral (similar to Rose's) and etched the exterior to create "bricks", then gilded the bricks that met at the corners of the structure with gold luster dust, along the twin bell towers at the front of the church (to mimic our Catholic Church we were married at back in Ann Arbor, MI) and around all the windows to include the large round 'stained glass' window. (Made with crushed Lifesaver candies, ha!). Fun, fun! xo
