Gingerbread Cookies

I participated in a virtual tea party today with some gals on one of the craft threads that I frequent. What is a virtual tea party you might ask? It is where you get together and share a tea related project with others (in our case it is usually paper crafts) and then you have a cup of tea and the host gives out challenges that are tea related. It is really a lot of fun! I have participated in two now and I plan to do more.

Another thing that is fun to do is have unusual foods with your tea. The last tea I made some specialty sandwiches and scones with my tea. Today, I decided on something rather simplistic but delightful, Gingerbread cookies. I purchased an organic box mix and created these wonderful cookies. I did not put any icing on mine as I prefer them plain. They turned out wonderful!

BTW, the cookie cutter came with the box mix! How fun is that?

Chocolate Cake with Sprinkles

There's nothing better than a little chocolate cake! I created this cake from a simple box mix. Of course I always put milk instead of water in my cake mix as it makes it so much more moist. To add a bit of fun, I decided to use some sprinkles on the cake. I also sprinkled the inside layer that was frosted. So yummy!!!

Coconut Cream Pie

Doesn't this look just so yummy? I made this homemade coconut pie a couple of weeks ago. My hubby just loved it! I actually made it using Splenda Blend. It was awesome!
