Gingerbread Pudding Cookies

A few weeks ago I participated in a Cookie Week with Nikki from Chef in Training.  These gingerbread cookies are what I brought to share on her blog.  I had to share them with you here too.  They were absolutely delicious and disappeared so fast from my cookie jar.  You can see my original post here.

Dear News Crew,

Thank you so much for deciding to visit my house for an interview on neighborhood crime today.  I am so glad that I did not shower, was sporting a pony tail and decided to wear barely any makeup.  That should be a pretty sight on the evening news tonight.  At least I wasn’t in pajamas or sweats:-)

Dear Ankle,
It’s time you suck it up and stop hurting.  I have given you 4 weeks of rest.  In return, you have allowed the brownies and cupcakes to take up residence in places I don’t like.  I have decided to make you go back to the gym, so don’t even try to start hurting again because I’m not listening.

Love,

Love,
The Lady with Cupcake Visions
