Strawberry Cookies for Mardi Gras

Wednesday night was spent baking strawberry cake mix cookies for Mardi Gras. One of the 8th graders fund raisers for their trip to Washington DC. I lucked out and since my last began with F, I had to bring in a home baked item, packaged individually!

Well as luck would have it, Wednesday was a busy, busy late work day and I got a late start on these babies!

Oh look, there are some more over there..........

And even more!

I only made two matches of these cookies, but it seemed like I would never be through with them! Now for the packaging..............

I put two cookies in a little cup, so they wouldn't get crushed and put a clear goodie bag over it and tied it with a ribbon.

I think Hubby and I went to bed at about 12:30 a.m. He helped with all the packaging and ribbons. No telling when I would have gotten to bed if he hadn't helped!!

They were delicious and seemed to go well at the "Cake Wheel" game at Mardis Gras.

Be back soon!

Yes.. I agree with your daughter.. Overachiever.
I love your packaging. I had to send cookies just the other day and couldn't come up with such a brilliant idea. I'll use it next time.

I was looking for Sandals and was wondering if Charlotte Russe is the best designer for Sandals?
