IMG_6179just playing around with icebox cookies ヾ(。◕ฺ∀◕ฺ)ノ… i didn’t think this was a nice set of sunflowers because i laid the log horizontally in the fridge when chilling… so if you like to make this, do chill placing the log vertical so you get a nice round log (* >ω<)… another decoration idea is to insert a pretzel stick into the cookie just after removing from oven… then stand it in a baked chocolate cupcake ヾ(。◕ฺ∀◕ฺ)ノ… just so many ways to beautify the house with your own bakes… isn’t it exciting? о(ж>▽<)y ☆
