Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!  Was that an official thing back when we were kids?  I don't remember anything so official, but then again, I wasn't the one orchestrating the crafts and gifts and sweet treats.  I'll have to ask my mom, and send her a long-overdue thank-you.  I'm sure even if Teacher Appreciation Week wasn't an official thing, she was still doing stuff to make sure my wonderful teachers knew they were valued.

Anyway, I just wanted to show the cookies my friend Heather and I made for the wonderful teachers at Desert Sun Child Development Center, the utterly remarkable preschool where both of my girls have gone.  It's our last year there (sniff).  That's almost sad enough to make me think about having a third kid.  Almost.

I've already written up a tutorial for making these easy-yet-adorable apple cookies.   Beginning of the year, end of the year, they're always perfect for a quick, easy, cute, tasty, teacher gift.

You know what I'm most excited about?  Using up that old easter grass in the package of cookies. Cute teacher gift and I get to use up something just hanging out in my garage?  Score!
