And it's been such a long time...

It's been such a long time that I don't even know where to start. Okay, how about with cookies?!

Here is a variety that was for a giyus kiddush
Chocolate pecan sticks, mint brownies, black and whites, chocolate peanut butter brownies, chocoalte cream sanwiches, apple crumble bars - all the platters were variations on this theme, same flavors, different layouts. There were also coordinating cupcakes, vanilla with frosting and sprinkles in the unit's colors.

This platter was a gift for a hostess - she must be quite a hostess to deserve such a nice platter! She received chocolate dipped chocolate chip cookies, polka dot cookies, alfajores, molasses cream sandwiches, orange-cranberry-white chocolate cookies, and thin mint sandwiches.This next one is a Purim platter (but you could have guessed that), including linzer cookies, ginger crinkles, blueberry bars, Mexican brownies, and polka dot cookies.We made a great many hamantaschen, in a wide variety of flavors, including prune, chocolate, caramel, apricot, raspberry, blueberry, and kiwi, which is always a crowd-pleaser/frightener.

The kids have all turned out to be pretty good hamantasch folders and pinchers, though I tend to think the picture is of mine and Shana's.

Frankly, I have no idea what the next one is - a random cookie platter from a random Shabbat...

It includes a new flavor, apricot squares, in addition to whoopie pies, glazed lemon cookies, double decker brownies, and chocolate caramel sandwiches.

This was a bar mitzvah kiddush platter for a celebration in Yerushalayim -chocolate caramel sandwiches, glazed lemon cookies, and the bar mitzvah's favorite, whoopie pies.Mazal tov, Yakir!!!

Finally - Dani's birthday cake. Our little man is a big 12 now, and in the bar mitzvah countdown mode. Wow!

Time really flew, especially on his birthday, where I ended up baking and decorating this cake in under 1 hour 45 minutes. Not too bad!

Next time, Purim festivities and mesibat siddur!
