Autism Awareness Month

April is Autism Awareness Month and I wanted to make some cookies to help raise awareness.  From the Autism Society website:

"In order to highlight the growing need for concern and awareness about autism, the Autism Society has been celebrating National Autism Awareness Month since the 1970's.  The United States recognizes April as a special opportunity for everyone to educate the public about autism and issues within the autism community."

The most recognized symbol for Autism is the puzzle ribbon, and that's where I found my inspiration for these cookies. That and, since I'm new at this, the help from the ever so talented Sweet Sugarbelle.

Visit the Autism Society website, to see how you can help raise awareness and make a difference this month!
