Cookie Love

I'm the co-chair of the Organics Recycling program at Carl's school. It seems like the kids are catching on to sorting their trash quite quickly, but a few of the adults in the building are not pitching in and doing their part. The other co-chair and I were trying to figure out a way to gently nudge the staff into compliance, when I remembered how much I used to appreciate a little bit of sustenance in my mail box when I was teaching. Thus was born the idea for these earth cookies.

I wrapped each cookie in a glassine bag then stapled on a tag with our message to promote recycling. Cheers to soft sugar cookies!

Love the cookies! I'd never be able to make them actually look like Earth!

Gorgeous cookies! And a great idea to help "motivate" the staff... funny how food always seems to work in a school environment isn't it?
