Friday night I made some cookies...yum. I have been craving a lemon cookie of some sort for weeks now and found a recipe online that was perfect. At the end of this recipe it says "pack the cookies into a decorative container".
Yeah, I guess...in a perfect world.
But 1. I don't have a decorative container...I don't even have a platter to put cookies on.
and 2. A lot of the cookies were gone before they got a chance to cool.
Cookies don't last in this house (unless you hide them- and even then not so much).
So, then I got to thinking I really need a pretty plate to put cookies and things like that on. Because basically right now I will have so many cookies at the end of baking I have to either use several plates or containers or put them on some sort of cooking rack or cutting board and cover them. Not a fun way to dress up cookies.
I don't have an Anthropologie nearby. Poor me. Well, there is one about and hour and a half away. That is not too far- but it is not exactly something you can just drop by and see what they have going on in the store. The first time I went into Anthropologie many years ago I wanted to live there. Really who doesn't? I mean, I would have tried to hide myself somewhere so I could stay longer- just to absorb everything. There is so much in an Anthropologie store to absorb. As soon as I walked out I wanted to turn around and go back.
Anyway, this beautiful little platter would be perfect for showcasing these lemon ricotta cookies with lemon glaze... and my mom would love it too (she loves fleur de lys)...and don't even get me started on the matching pieces to go with it.
In reality though, by the time the cookies cooled and I the glaze was firm I was able to fit them all on a dinner plate ;)
