Mrs. Johnston has family visiting all the way from Maine and Florida. Because they don't get to make it home to Texas very often, she wanted to make them a Texas goodie bag to take back home with them. I thought that was such a sweet idea and I was honored that she wanted my cookies to be a part of it! Since they will be here over the 4th, a patriotic spin on the cookies was only natural. Mrs. Johnston had seen my Going Away cookies for my friend Jenny and together we came up with the concept.
The stars have sanding sugar on the white border. This not only made them pop and tie them in with the USA cookies, but it adds a nice crunch to the cookie as well.
Enjoy this time with your family, Mrs. Johnston, and thank you so much for letting me be a part of giving your family a little piece of Texas to bring home with them!
