I decided to try something different this year with the cookies. My friend Dani called me and we had been procrastinating for months about getting together to cook, so we seized the opportunity and she came over on Monday. We used my usual vanilla-bean sugar cookie recipe, only this time we rolled a basketweave textured mat created for clay/pottery to add a Springtime element to the cookies without having to decorate them (or paint them as Dani says).
I think the design makes a fantastic statement - subtle and classic looking. I am working on having a basket cookie cutter made to use with the basketweave mat. The mats are wholesale only, so if you are interested contact me at - email@example.com to purchase them for $10.
