We baked over 500 macarons on a Friday night!

Our Danish pretzels are sweet, buttery shortbread cookies that melt in your mouth. We hand-
shape each one and sprinkle them with sparkly pearl sugar. They'll put crumbs in your mustache.

Props to my little Sis who helped package all these Neapolitan cookies!

Whew! My butt is whooped. Baking can be some seriously hard work. Our arms ache from hand folding twenty batches of macaron batter in a bowl the size of a tractor tire, and then there are the tedious tasks that last well into the morning, like rolling tiny logs of dough into pretzel shapes or filling 500 sandwich cookies with teaspoons of butter cream. My teeth are slick from trying a hundred bites of cookies. By the time I crawl into bed, sugar and egg whites are plastered to my forearms like stucco, and my heavy limbs are still tangled up in apron strings.

But I love these cookies. And I love seeing people's faces light up when they try them for the first time. There are people I've never met before, eating my cookies right in front of me, and they're SUPER STOKED. They make funny faces to illustrate how good they taste, and my head just kinda wobbles on my neck while I smile at them in awe. I'm kind of a dork like that. I'm really happy + tired.
