Nothing says “I’m maternal” like baking cookies. Submitting to the cliché, I agreed to try my hand at making a few dozen for our town’s annual tree lighting tomorrow. Needless to say, they completely ruined my diet the last couple of days. It’s a conspiracy!

Raeven did the icing. Aren’t they perfect? The no-brainer recipe is at my cooking blog. These are simple sugar cookies (we call them butter cookies in Malaysia and elsewhere).

And nothing warms the heart more than a buttery-smelling house and the sight of one’s children tucking in happily.

And just for fun, I took a pic of some of my cinnamon-y pinecones. If I could eat them, I would.

Have a good weekend, all.
