Baking Monday - Cinnamon Sugar Butter Cookies

Yes, it's Tuesday, but yesterday was a holiday. A couple of weeks ago, I hosted my first ever Tupperware party, and it was loads of fun. The consultant gave me a choice of a few things she could demonstrate making during the party, and I chose salsa (it was yummy). So, I opted to go for a whole southwest theme for the party, including margaritas (also yummy), tropical fruit salad and mini taco appetizers.

I was searching for a cookie that would go well with the mix and decided on these cookies from Mrs. Fields. Very snickerdoodle-like, they were buttery and delicious. They spread quite a bit during baking so make sure to space them far apart on the baking sheet.

And I just happened to have this perfect little plate for the occasion ... Theo's second birthday party had a cowboy theme, and our neighbors brought dessert on this plate for us to keep, and this is the first time it's been used since then. I have no idea why I hung onto it for so long - probably for just such an occasion!

Sorry for the lapse in posts the last couple of weeks, we're finally in summer vacation mode, which means late bedtime, late sleep-ins, and very little time to myself. I spent last week's spare moments baking and cleaning for our yard sale (YAY), so I'll have lots of treats to post over the next few days.
