Today's my anniversary!
When it comes to cookies, my husband is my quality control person. He eats the rejects, gives me honest feedback when I try new recipes and tells me what's good and bad about my decorating. Even though he gets plenty of cookies through this process, I realized that I have NEVER made cookies just for him. We don't have children, so no Father's Day cookies, Valentine's Day we're usually still counting calories from the overeating during the Christmas holidays. . . so for our anniversary this year I decided it was time I made some cookies just for him.
I chose to do beach themed cookies because we got married on a beautiful beach in Maui. The little crab cookies are an inside joke because these cute little critters were the only guests at the wedding! Every time we have the opportunity to go back to Hawaii, we visit the beach where we had our wedding and the little crabs come out to bite Matt's ankles.
Marlyn of Montreal Confections also has a great tutorial for the beach cookie:
