Almond-Butter Cookie Bouquet Recipe

Almond-Butter Cookie Bouquet Recipe

I make these cookie pops often during the year. In the spring, I cut them into flower shapes and insert the pops into a block of foam fitted into a basket or bowl. You can cover the foam with tissue paper or cellophane. Add a bow if you like. They make a great centerpiece or hostess gift. Not only do the cookies look pretty, they taste good, too. —Krissy Fossmeyer, Huntley, Illinois

"This is a great recipe. My niece made these for our Mother's Day dessert. She served them as pictured in a basket with foam in the bottom and "grass". We also bought a brightly colored flowerpot at Michael's and made an individual pot for my mother to take home."
