S’More Fun!

We made s’more cookies for a camping themed birthday party! You can check out the blog at “Glorious Treats” for a tutorial on how to make these cookies.  We didn’t have the same cutter so we used a square and hand cut the edges.

We had so much fun with these, we made “s’more” for our kids’ teachers on the first day of school. Our notes read, “Looking forward to S’MORE fun this year.”  The kids were super excited to give these to their teachers.  Hope your school year is off to a good start too! – Elaine & April

Purim is Coming…..

Purim is Wednesday, March 7, 2012…..we know that you are supposed to eat Hamantashen, but we like sugar cookies better!

We made King Ahasuerus and Queen Ester cookies to get in the spirit! Our kids will be delivering these as miscloah minot gifts (A phrase taken from the Megillah that commands the Jewish community to give small packages of food or gifts to friends on the day of Purim). For our non-Jewish friends….Purim is a festive holiday where we dress up in costume and celebrate the triumph of good versus evil and Queen Ester’s bravery.  For more information check out this link about Purim. Get your groggers ready and hopefully we will see some friends at the Megillah reading on Wednesday night at Temple Solel!
