I am invited for lunch today at a friends house and wanted to bring a little sweet treat for her. I read a blog by Janis Nikolay who is a lifestyle photographer and avid baker. Each week she posts a gorgeous recipe, and any I have tried have been great. This recipe for Yo-Yo cookies came from her blog Pine Cone Camp which you can find HERE.
Being on a permanent diet, If I am baking, I try to get rid of the leftovers quickly and deliver them on little plates to unsuspecting neighbors. Last night I made 2 home deliveries and have this little vintage pressed glass plate ready to take to my lunch. Not one to buy brand new dishes, I find loads of sweet vintage plates in my travels. I always buy them for a dollar or two and hang on to them to use for baked gifts. The plate then becomes part of the gift...a pretty recycled treasure to use and enjoy long after the cookies are gone.
