penzey's cinnamon... a gift

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to meet some internet friends and had a great time together icing COOKIES, talking COOKIES and having fun with COOKIES!

I met some of the most amazing decorators, that happen to be beautiful human beings that love to share and give... I can't talk of all of them in one post, so I plan to introduce each one in a special post...

This post is dedicated to Tricia and Denyse, from Arizona. We met via flickr, which is an amazing place to meet people that do/love the same things you do/love... Tricia and Denyse are sisters in law... in the few days I spent with them (they were among the friends that picked me up at the airport!), I can tell they are very close and are always laughing. They gave each of us a bottle of Pensey's Vientamese Cinnamon...


I happen to love cinnamon, and couldn't wait to be back home and use it. I found that it has a great rich flavour, not spiced nor pungent...

Even if you don't have Pensey's Cinnamon, you have to try this recipe!
Happy Baking!!

cookies inspired by martha stewart




I made 215 of these 3-4 years ago for my friend's son Wedding... As many, in different crafts, I was inspired by Martha Steward. I also was kind of new to COOKIES... they were photographed by another friend and I totally forgot about them.
This month along with a group of friends, I'll work on a project inspired by her, and I remembered these... they look better than my usual pics (which with Glory's fabulous demo will hopefully improve), and even though I see the mini cake a little lopsided and know I would now make a better work, at that time I was really proud of them...

Hace 3-4 años hice estas GALLETAS para la boda del hijo de una amiga... Como muchos otros, me inspiré en Martha Steward. En esa época era algo nueva decorando GALLETAS... las fotografió un amigo, y me olvidé por completo de ellas.


Este mes, junto con un grupo de amigas, voy a trabajar en un proyecto inspirado por ella y me acordé de estas cajitas. La fotografía es mejor que las que usualmente tomo (que gracias a una excelente demostración de la talentosa Glory muy probablemente mejorarán), y aunque al verla ahora veo que el pastelito está un poco chueco, y que seguramente puedo hacer un mejor trabajo, en ese momento me sentí muy orgullosa de ellos...
