Celebration care packages are my favorite. I’m not picky about what kind of celebration; birthdays, graduation, new school/job, religious or secular holidays. I am even in favor of care packages celebrating holidays like National Nutella Day. I think it is important to celebrate people and events. Celebrations honor, remember, and commemorate. Celebrations keep the days from blending together, all the same, one after the other. Celebrations make a day special. When someone you love is far away, care packages make it possible to celebrate together in spirit. It’s like sending a party in a box.
Let me introduce you to the Moon Cookies™ a chocolate orb complete with craters of deliciousness. This is what the moon would look like if it was made of chocolate instead of green cheese. This Moon Cookie™ is soft and chewy chocolaty mocha. It has shiny craters of caramel coffee that encrust the cookie surface. It was a wonderful, unexpected mistake.
This week I struggled with baker’s block added to a mild temporary case of baking burn-out. Last week I had a lot of fun baking a lot of cookies. I was baking as a gift for my friend Laurel’s daughter, Dara. Dara had her bat mitzvah ceremony on Monday. Afterwards, there was a beautiful luncheon celebration. I baked dessert for the 120 guests.
