It feels like a never ending snowy story here in VA. I can not believe that it’s mid March and looking out of the window I see that the roads are covered with snow again.Very depressing. I am really ready for spring and I am sure you all are too.

Springy Lemon Sugar Cookies - The 36th Avenue

As Easter and Teacher Appreciation days are approaching fast , I made up these cute cookie flower pots.

We love making cookies, however we never really make icing covered cookies. I can never decorate beautifully with icing. I chose pink and blue to decorate but it’s really up to you what color you go with. I made my icing with powdered sugar , food coloring and little bit of water and dropped small dots on my cookies.

They turned out darling.

I bought these small flower pots at dollar store { 3/$1 } and dropped some colorful eggs in the bottom to hold the flower stick.
