August Bakin' Friends

Renee Butcher (aka What's For Dinner Mama?), my Bakin' Friend for August, blew me away with the package she sent me!  The floral background is actually the mailer she used to send me the goodies.

And the two flamingo glasses inside were stacked full of the most delicious cookies . . .


I had to include a photo of the adorable card she included with the name of the recipe on the front and the recipe on the back.  She also sent me a couple of matching business cards.  But take a look at the main event!

Sorry about the crumbs on the platters.  I wanted to hurry and get the photo session over with so I could sit back and enjoy a cookie or three.  These cookies melt in your mouth, have such a delicious shortbread flavor and the butterscotch bark chips really stand out.  I can't wait to make the butterscotch bark, I think it would make a great gift for the upcoming holidays.  And if I don't eat the entire batch, I will make these cookies.  They are absolutely delicious!

But now the pretty flamingo glasses are empty.  I think they will look great filled with ice-cold fruity cocktails with little paper umbrellas on top, don't you?  Mmm . . .

Thank you, Renee, for all the goodies!  I loved the cookies and whenever I use the glasses, I will think of the your delicious generosity!

Bakin' Friends is now in it's second year and I can't wait to see what the secret ingredient will be for September.  If you would like to join our group, please go to for more information.  It's like being in the Dessert-of-the-Month Club!
