Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up May 7-11!

Our kids’ teachers need to be thanked and what better way than with a cookie?

I’m excited to be demonstrating some simple techniques for school cookies on KSL, Studio 5 today!
(If you’re here for the first time, welcome!!!!  For my sugar cookie and royal icing recipe, click here).
I’m demonstrating some cookies I’ve done before as I teach the basics of royal icing.

We are making apple cookies:

And ruler cookies:

I hope you’ll give these a try!   And if you do, you are welcome to download the tags I made!
“An apple for the {best} teacher”

“You Rule”- pencil box size

“You Rule”- small tag size

I really love these cardboard pencil boxes that you can just glue a message on.  I’ve bought them at Michael’s and ordered them online at Nasco.

You can make all sorts of school cookies for your pencil box.


Or you can fill it with just crayons!

It’s fun to personalize the cover of these pencil boxes with Teachers’ and kids’ names, but if you’d like a generic “Thank-you for being such a great Teacher” box cover, you can download that too!

End of the year teacher gifts are around the corner too!  And those teachers deserve a cookie or two or twenty!!!  Every time I help in the classroom, I have a new respect for the energy and patience it takes to run those classrooms!  So let’s make them some cookies!  πŸ™‚
