Heifer Project Cookies
Every winter, the kids and I help out with our local ecumenical group to raise funds for the Heifer Project. This year we made cookies to sell at the Winter Market. My junior high English teacher, Miss Pete, works the table, which means that we just had to make the cookies and drop them off (thanks, Miss Pete!) on our way to a lot of other adventures.
We chose only animals that are used in the Heifer Project: water buffalo, camels, geese, ducks, chickens, rabbits, honey bees, sheep, llamas, and pigs.
It was so much fun to decorate these–mixing up all the different colors of frosting, doing the outlining, and then flooding them . . . it’s as close as I’ll ever come to being an artist. I can’t resist a few more close ups . . . bear with me.
