Is this like being on the Wheaties box?

Last year, my friends at Imperial Sugar asked if I'd be interested in making some cookies to go on their new powdered sugar packaging.
Wait. WHAT???

Of course, the answer was, "Yes! Of course!" And the in the back of my mind, I was thinking, "Maybe they emailed the wrong person."

Anyhoo, last week the boxes finally arrived in my grocery store. I might of stopped dead in my tracks, then spent a few minutes straightening the display. Then, I took a picture and totally forgot what else I was there to purchase. 

The whole process of the cookies and pictures for the box was really interesting. I made a bunch of cookies...and took, oh, about a zillion pictures with the cookies stacked and grouped in different combinations. Here are a few...

There was feedback from Imperial and then more cookie combinations and photo taking. After that, there was just the waiting to actually SEE the boxes on store shelves.

Now, they're here! Yay!!!
{I know, how many pictures of powdered sugar boxes can one person take? Answer: a lot.}

I'm thinking this is my version of being on the Wheaties box. You know, without having to exercise. 

To celebrate, I thought we'd have a little giveaway...
