What's your favorite cookie?

MINE are Snickerdoodles! See below the picture for a recipe I found this evening and that I'm going to make sometime this week. They sound wonderful.
Five ingredients—including white cake mix—get these cinnamon-sugar cookies in the oven in just 20 minutes!Makes: About 4 Dozen Cookies

package Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix
cup vegetable oil
tablespoons sugar
teaspoon ground cinnamon
Heat oven to 350°. Mix cake mix, oil and eggs in large bowl with spoon until dough forms (some dry mix will remain).
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Mix sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

Happy baking!!!

Kay in space # 7 just got these sweet little Valentine girls in. They are soooo cute. Even though they have lots of hearts on them they could stay out all year long.

IF YOUR a steady customer of MY FRIENDS AND I you know that we don't do much Valentines Day but we do have some cute things in the shop right now, including the pretty Romantic Homes magazine with the wonderful Valentines cover. It would be pretty just sitting on your coffee table as a decoration.
The card below with our store pictures on it was made in Picnik. You can do all sorts of things free there, but if you join you get to use really cute creative templates like I did with these pictures.

Start a collection!

It's the New Year have some fun. Start a new collection or add to the ones you already have. Recipe boxes are really popular right now and we have some cute ones. All are tin except for the 2 wood ones on the right. We may even have more. I didn't check the whole store, but thought this would give you a good idea of what we have.
I have LOTS of collections and after seeing these all grouped I could almost start collecting them too. Oh boy I need some control! Click on the link below the pictures for a site about vintage cookies cutters. It kind of goes with recipe boxes don't you think? She does sell them, but there is some interesting history on the site.
