All cookies are delicious to eat but some cookies are also beautiful.
Jam Thumbprints make a stunning display and so do Peanut Blossoms

I decided to make some peanut blossoms, with a blog feature in mind, but hadn't planned on the entire batch disappearing in one day! Good thing I took my pictures before anybody found them. :)
Hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
