These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

Have you tried these? They definately rank in the top of my list of favorite things. Chocolate covered sunflower seeds. I'm not sure what draws me to them, they're not bursting with flavor but they are always gorgeous! They come in bright colors with a slight sheen to their candy shell. When I saw these at the store, I knew I had to have them. I was sold on colors alone.

See what I mean?

My plans were to come home and make sugar cookies with the princesses, ice them and then let the girls decorate the tops of the iced cookies with the sunflower seeds.  I have visions of brightly colored candy floating on a bed of fluffy white icing. It was perfect in my mind, except that I lacked the powdered sugar for the frosting. I actually buy powdered sugar in bulk from Sam's, 7lbs at a time! But there was none to be found in my kitchen.

I was already mixing the sugar cookie dough so I decided to go ahead and just let them press the seeds into the cookie dough. The good thing about kids is that they just want the experience, missing ingredients or not, they don't care.

Here's my first attempt at design

now it's their turn

Princess Girly Girl's                         Princess Goofy's

My ode to Martha Stewart, she would be so proud.

Ready for the oven

Voila! Beautiful cookies!

Yes, the colors did run and melt a little as the cookies baked but they are still beautiful. In true clumsy fashion though I did serve my children semi-raw cookies. I pulled them out of the oven and let them cool for awhile and then served each princess a cookie and kept doing what I was doing. Five minutes later I tried a cookie only to find out that the middles were raw! Oops.

Don't worry, next time I'll actually finish baking the cookies. And I might even buy powdered sugar.
