Cookie Monster

I am going to say it again. I LOVE THIS RECIPE! If you haven't tried Chef Keem's Macaroon recipe, you must get right to it.
As I had mentioned in a previous post, I made some Macaroons to took take for a raffle at Family Reunion. I wanted to find Pastry boxes with cellophane windows on top, so that the cookies would look like they came from a fancy bakery. I looked and looked. I couldn't find any. I went to the bakery at my local Wal Mart and got my ear chewed off by the gal behind the bakery counter. I was left with only what my imagination could come up with.
I made the tray with some white card stock.
I folded all four edges in about an inch.

I cut the one side of the corner piece.

Then hot glued them to form a nice sharp corner.

I finished it up with cellophane and tulle. I think it looked nice. I made small trays for lemon bars.

It looks really nice! I never would have thought of that...did the lady at WalMart yell at you?

Why did the lady at Wal Mart yell at you?

The Wal Mart lady just let me have it. Apparently they had sold so many to small businesses that they ran out a while back. So my asking if I could by six (for personal use.)was just out of line. She didn't raise her voice, but she just couldn't stop. I kept saying "oh, okay, that's fine. I was just wondering." over and over. She just wouldn't stop. I would inch away and she would stay right on me. I think she was just bored. Needed something to do or someone to attack. You know how it goes. :)
