This was a quick, last minute addition to the baking schedule. Friend at work asked for a box of cookies for a new baby boy. Such a happy time, the arrival of a new little one. Onesies are a go-to shape for new baby cookies and I must admit that I have a ‘thing’ for argyle. I also was happy to try a design that had been sleeping in the recesses of my mind: mommy loves daddy loves baby loves mommy…. a little more work to make that just right but you get the gist.
I am quite familiar with eau de chlorine as both of our daughters were competition swimmers. And, once you are in the swim world, it is never far away. At least I have absolutely NO guilt handing a swimmer a cookie. They are a fit bunch who will burn those calories within the first 25 yards. I made some traditional, looks.like.a.swimsuit cookies as favors for a swim banquet. But then I digressed. A platter for a bunch of gentlemen swimmers who are stealthy like a ninja and maybe, just maybe, caught the water inferences before consuming the “molecules”. And this week, as college swimmers start the 2014 championship season, I stamped aquatic themed conversation hearts. I might go as far as to say they turned out swimmingly!
