C...Is For Cookie

Some pleasures just need a bit of dressing up..there are not many things that I enjoy more than a French maracon...and I love all the flavors...

This weeks Be-Still lesson was to work with some typography..I thought about that for awhile and I really do not know where the idea of macarons came from but I did find myself at the French bakery buying these lovlies...and then, the light bulb moment...the letter C for cookies.  Brilliant, right?

So today I'm hooking up to Texture Tuesday and Be Still...the macarons are textured with KK carmel and then a second texture of KK desert.   Processed in LR using KK pre-set pastelhaze...and there you have it..

Now, I think I need to go get a cup of tea....

You'll definitely need more than these macaroons because if I'm there having tea with you, I could eat about this many. This is so cute, and forming a C for cookie with macaroons is so fun!! I love the bit of forsythia on the plate, with the sweet doily! Love it Cheryl...C is also for Cheryl. :-)

Somehow I never tasted these cookies until relatively recently. And now I know what all the fuss is about! They are exquisite. I love how you presented them here and processed the image. Just lovely.OK now I have to go get some of these before I leave Florida…;-)

Absolutely divine and
Yes, C is for Cheryl's Creative Cookies!!!
Simply elegant design!
The forsythia is also a bonus.
Beautiful job!
Wish I could experience the taste!
I'll take your word for it!
I know I love any kind of coconut or macaroon, so
am salivating looking at these delicacies!

Perfect. I love the blank space on the right and the Forsythia wrapped along the macaroons!

Beverly these were the smallest macarons I have ever seen and they were 1.50 each...yes, when you come I would certainly have to get more...the ones in St. Maarten are three times this size and less money...I'll just wait until February like I ususally do...thanks for visiting.

Thanks you Peg for your visit...I don't think I've seen these cookies before but when you come I'll go back to the bakery.

Sherry so glad you got a chance to try them...but if your Wingsong 111 ever makes it to St. Maarten be sure to get some of these on the French Side...they are the very best...

So beautifully displayed with the paper lace doilie, awesome, my granddaughter can't wait to get some in Paris. I would love to hear what were your favorite places and things you saw in Paris? If you could drop me an e-mail I would love to hear. Have a beautiful week Cheryl

Such a delicate and delightful image, Cheryl! Those light pastels and the yellow spring flowers ... Macarons are just so delicious - perfect with a cup of tea!
