I feel like it has been so long since I decorated any cookies! Last night I got inspired to make some limes. Summer is quickly fading and I just want to hang on to the last few weeks. There is just something about limes that feels so summery to me. I love lime in Pad Thai, in cookies, and of course in a cocktail!

I let my daughter pick any recipe she wanted to make out of a cooking with toddlers cook book. Of course she choose the colored meringues! They were fun for her to make except she got tired of holding the electric mixer. She loved using the pastry bag to pipe the meringues onto the cookie sheet. She decided to dip hers in chocolate which I was all for. We just melted chocolate chips over a double boiler and stirred in half and half. They were ooey and gooey but tasted really good!

I love the Stowe Community Church cookies. They are made using a custom cookie cutter that I ordered on Etsy. It was my first time designing a cutter and I am happy with the way it turned out. Hmmm what other buildings could be turned into a cutter...The churches are about six inches tall and would make a great wedding/shower favor.

I took a break from cookies this week and made some great blueberry muffins instead. My husband, daughter and I went blueberry picking and we were having so much fun we ended up with nine pints! They are big and juicy and perfect for muffins. I used this recipe from Ina Garten, they are a bit indulgent but they taste really good! http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/blueberry-coffee-cake-muffins-recipe/index.html
