Hi, all! I'm back from my teaching trip and ready to kick into high gear on Saturday Spotlights again! I thank you all for your patience and understanding over the last two weeks as I worked through some big cookie commitments on this end. I think I've finally recuperated . . . just in time to tackle the next big thing . . .
Anyway, I'm sure this week's return to spotlighted cookies will be as welcome as a breath of fresh spring air (ideally redolent with lilacs and lily of the valley, two of my favorite spring flowers)! Each and every featured cookie is a gorgeous work of art, and many - including our lilac cover image by @Cookieland, a lily of the valley heart, and heart-shaped flower baskets - capture spring at its finest. We also have a some very talented newcomers to this Spotlight, so be sure to give those folks an extra nod.
Now, sit back, inhale and exhale deeply, relax, and enjoy! You'll find the last two week's wait well worth it, I believe.
