Lime green and chocolate Brown frostings look great on our hand-rolled sugar birthday cookies. We also came up with a teal green/blue color that looks just right for a summer birthday.

Chocolate Chip Cookies are the hardest cookie to bake, I think. Maybe the weather is to blame, one too large egg, not quite enough flour, overbeating the batter, the butter not at the right temperature, etc. But today I got it right! Slightly crispy on the outside, chocolate melting everywhere, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth texture, soft in the middle, well, enough said. I hope it doesn't sound like I'm bragging, but cookie bakers will understand. The cookie was worth the calories today!

I just finished baking a batch of our new cookie which we will feature the month of July, our RED, WHITE & BLUE Cookie. We start with our chocolate chip recipe batter, instead of chocolate chips, we add dried blueberries, cranberries and Callebaut White Chocolate Chunks. The sweetness of the white chocolate and the slightly tart flavor of the cranberries and blueberries create an absolutely wonderful cookie! I had to pack up the remaining cookies quickly to avoid eating more than one.
