Happy Year of the Rabbit! May it bring you friends and celebrations. (The card above was sent by a friend who made it all by hand, I love the origami rabbit with the sticker dot for a tail!)

teeny cookies as decoration

tiny cookies decorating a straw for a chocolate milkshake

Yesterday I talked about some teeny tiny cookies and in the comments Suswhit mentioned a restaurant that uses them to decorate straws for milkshakes. Adorable! Luckily I have good milkshakes nearby and tried it out. I can tell you that these cookies just barely fit on the thinner style drinking straws. I wish I’d thought to get some whipped cream and sprinkle matching nonpareils on top.

teeny cookies

[ teeny wreath shaped cookies with colored nonpareils ]

One thing that is making me happy this winter are these teeny cookies. I bought them just because the box says “teeny” right on it. They are about the size of a quarter and with the crunchy nonpareils they are so much fun to eat. The chocolate ones taste like fudge stripe cookies, a favorite from my childhood. I must make teeny cookies of my own soon.
