As you can imagine, when it came to packing up my vacation clothes and leave Florida I was in a wee bit of a pickle. While in the good old US of A I discovered and promptly fell head over heals in love with the amazing Williams Sonoma. Much to my friends dismay I spent hours browsing through the cake pans, raking through the cookie presses and drooling over the delicious pie fillings. They could have their roller coasters and water slides, I had pocket pie molds to buy!
So ridiculously excited was I to get home and play with my new toys that I spent the rest of the holiday dreaming about my lovely little kitchen and all the tasty things I could bake with my new found goodies. And what delighted me even more was I get to share it all with you. So, here we are with my 'Awesome Things I Bought in America - Part One'. Are you excited? I sure am!
This was actually the last thing I bought before coming home. I mulled the purchase over for my full two weeks before returning to the mall to snap them up. The issue of forcing them into my already bulging suitcase is a whole other story.
I am in love with these cutters. Though I don't think I've perfected the recipe yet, I had some issues with cracking and blistering and I feel I was a little too light on the stamping but the taste sure makes up for it. They are delicious! Among the best sugar cookies I have ever had the pleasure of eating. They can be emblazoned with anything your heart desires, from the traditional 'I Love You' to a cheeky 'Bite Me'. Maybe this year I'll substitute Christmas cards with personalised cookies.
