Thankful (cookie) Hearts

These two-sided cookie hearts double as place cards AND dessert. 

They're also a delicious way to get everyone talking about what they're thankful for this year.

On one side, you write each guest's name.  Then, give them a food coloring pen and let them write what they're thankful for on the other side.

Their answers just may surprise you.

I'm blogging about how to make them over on Parade.com.

  10. Just discovered your blog. Love your cookies so much. Like Wenderly, I grew up with these Currier and Ives plates too! My grandfather worked at A & P grocery store, and they collected these plates one by one as they bought their groceries each week and received the plate offered as a special collectors item each week. My grandmother used hers for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners only, and she left them to me. I use mine everyday to remind me of my wonderful grandparents.
