    Sooo, I kinda completely lost my mind and went into a baking coma this year. I started off with some more of those sugar cookies with royal icing that I did at Halloween:

    I need to work on my technique with the icing, but not too bad for the second time making them, I think. :)

    Then I ventured out into some things I've never tried before. These are called "Gooey Coconut Everything Bars". I made one batch with dried pineapple and one with dried cherries & berries

    Then I wrapped them all up, packed them, and my trusty mailman picked them up and sent them on their way! :salute:

    do you sell them or what? those are some legit cookies and that's a ton of work to go through to send them out to friends and family.
