Back 2 School Pencil Cookies

presents us with this yummy idea for kids (and adults).

Lately "Back to School" has been the chorus of friends and family as the conversation buzzes about fresh haircuts, new clothes, and the wide-eyed anticipation of our little loves walking into the big school doors with sharpened pencils and backpacks in tow.

I wanted to send my boys off with exciting treats snuggled into their pockets...
Sweetly Sharpened Pencil Cookies.

Every part of making these cookies was fun except for the clean up. I got on this cookie craze thanks to http://bakeat350.blogspot.com/ ,an incredible blog full of amazing cookies! She has amazing ideas too and I'm so thankful for her tutorials. I used a ruler to make the pencil shapes because I didn't have cookie cutters and I used chocolate chips for the lead.

We are also wrapping some cookies up for friends and teachers. I used these DARLING
Cath Kidston Book of Labels and Stickers to add some cuteness to the gift.

Nothing ever prepares me for the rush of school mornings, SO if you have ANY tips, please forward them along! My tip is to purchase GOOD GEAR to keep everything organized! Below are some amazing Pottery Barn Kids backpacks (yes, once again I'm in love). This is our second year with them and they are still in durable shape!

Back 2 School Pencil Cookies sound like a great idea! I'd love to have one in my lunch the first day of school. Thanks Lisa at Moore Minutes for sharing this idea with us!

  1. Yay!!! They look AWESOME! And thanks so much for the sweet shout-out!

  2. These pencil cookies are so cute and yummy looking.

  3. Adorable cookies :) And, adorable boys. My favorite back-to-school tip is to make a chart spelling out every little thing the kids will need to do before walking out the door. Brush your teeth? Check. Comb your hair? Check. Gather your homework? Check. Pack up shorts for after-school basketball? Check. That way Mom and Dad don't have to be the family nag; the chart becomes the family nag. No more feeling like a broken record every morning :) Happy back to school days.

  4. Lisa, you are amazing. You ALWAYS do the cutest things. This is just adorable.
