Thank You

I made these for my friend who wanted to say thank you in a huge way. Her and her husband just celebrated an anniversary together. They had a nice dinner provided by a sweet lady, and her daughter. They wore black shirts with white aprons that had a little ruffle at the bottom. These just made me smile because they turned out so cute!

Up house in motion

Here is a photo of the house at the party. It looked so awesome. The heat was making it sway back and forth so it really looked like it was floating away!

Ho. Ho. Ho.

I had to post these photo's. I put together these cookies for a lady to take to her work. I have never used this santa cookie cutter, but it is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy!

Gingerbread Couple

I have had these larger gingerbread people for a long time. It wasn't until I dumped out my box of plastic cookie cutters, that I found them. When I had extra gingerbread cookie dough left over.... I could not resist!

Twas the night before Chirstmas

These cute little mice are here to wish you a very Merry Christmas. We gave these to our neighbors this year with the little quote from the night before Christmas. ....not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. They were fun. I like how they turned out.

Up, Up and away!

I have been working on cookies and a gingerbread house for my friends son's wedding. They have the theme "up" from Disney/Pixar. They will suspend the house from the air and have helium balloons coming out of the top. The cookies will be out on the banquet tables with all the refreshments. The bridesmaid and granddaughters will carry button balls with a ribbon. My husband and I have been working on them for the last couple of nights. They turned out fun. My daughter has been begging me to let her have one. .....( I have been begging for one too!)

Mini gingerbread homes

This year for Christmas, my children are going to give their friends these mini gingerbread houses. I just bought these cutters from fancy flours and I love them. It makes it quick and easy, rather than cut each one out by hand. I love how they turned out. I will have to make more.

A Grand Wedding

My cookies are going to be featured in a bridal magazine for the Jackson Hole Wy., Teton Valley Id. area. I was so excited to have this honor and chance to show off the work I do. These are the cookies that will appear in the magazine.

Christmas winter scenes

I have a friend that wanted to give her children's teacher a Christmas gift they wouldn't forget. I came up with these cookies, lets hope they flip out when they see them!


These fun bells were made for a lady that is having a party. The table setting has matching bell place card holders. What a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday season.

Christmas Gingerbread house

Every year my husband asks me to make him a gingerbread house. My youngest son also loves looking at them. This year I decided to make my husband a house for Christmas. We have a tradition of making a gift for each other, this is my gift to him.

Good luck!

I had a lady request a cookie for a girl performing in a junior miss program. I thought that this would do the trick!

The Nutcracker

All three of my children will be performing in the Nutcracker Ballet this year. It is always an exciting time. The owner of the dance studio always hires professional ballerinas to come and dance with the children. This makes for a beautiful performance. I made these cookies to give to the professional dancers at the end of the show.

Christmas mini's

Thanksgiving has now come and gone. But Christmas is in the air. I couldn't resist making these little mini's. Perfect for teacher gifts, and stockings. Or just eating with a cup of Hot Cocoa. I love the holiday season. I wish all a very Happy Holiday this year!

Mini Tins

Introducing "Mary's Mini's". These cute little tins have become my favorite project so far. They have turned out cuter than I expected. Each 3x5 tin comes with 20 mini cookies. Great for gifts, stocking stuffers, or place settings. Just perfect for any occasion.

pumpkin pie

I have wanted to make these cookies for some time now. I should have let the icing dry a little bit longer before adding the whip cream. I added pumpkin pie spice to the icing, and ground nutmeg to the dollop of whip cream. Who wants pie??

Happy 16th Birthday

I had a blast making these cookies. I went with the idea that I had with the previous birthday party. I wanted to show how fun these were in a bouquet!
Happy Birthday!

Thanks a Million

These turned out so fun. I have wanted the dollar sign cookie cutter for awhile. I love the happy smiling faces wishing you a great big "Thank You!"

Fall is in the air!

I am in love with fall. What better way to celebrate than with some beautiful cookies. My kids gave the big acorn cookies to their teachers at school. Want to be the hit of the party this Thanksgiving. Why not bring a beautiful arrangement for dinner. This may be the first dessert to pretty to eat!

Haunted House!

I was asked to make a gingerbread haunted house for a Halloween party this year. I am not a fan of making gingerbread houses. I really wasn't looking forward to making this. But....I am so pleased with how it turned out!

Baby boy

These were made for a little boy that was born premature. He was 2 1/2 pounds. We wish him well!

Halloween part 2

I have made a lot of Halloween cookies this year. I had to make another post because I added some different cookies this time. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!


My little neighbor loves Herbie. I made him these cookies for his birthday. When I delivered these cookies, he took one look and started jumping up and down and started running around the house. It was so cute. He was super excited!


I had a lot of fun making these cookies. The volleyball teams mascot are bee's. So I thought it would be fun to put some bee's on their cookies. The soccer ball cookies turned out fun even though it is very difficult to draw the lines on the soccers.
