March 8, 2012 Update: My brother, Franki, laughingly asked me the other day, "Why is there a pile of potpourri in the middle of all of these cookie pictures?" I explained that I was having difficulty that day trying to properly caption all of the pictures that I had uploaded into this post. Blah blah blah. Long story short. I blew off the need for captions and simply posted the images. So, today, I feel the need to quickly list what's shown below, in order of appearance:
1) Coconut cherry thumbprint cookies, 2) Grand Marnier & Chocolate Biscotti (baked loaves, before slicing and re-baking) 3 & 4) Earl Grey shortbread cookies 5) whole Chai tea from Teavana (the potpourri, lol) before it was ground up into a powder in the coffee grinder - more specifically White Ayurvedic Chai and Samurai Chai Mate 6,7,8 & 9) Chai tea shortbread cookies, 10) toasted coconut and 11 & 12) Cashew & Chocolate Toasted Coconut cookies. There you have it. The reason for the "potpourri". Thank Franki. Love you !
