When my coworker asked if I'd be willing to make cookies as part of her "Happiness Campaign", I was thrilled to a) help her bring some joy to her friends and loved ones, and b) have a fabulous excuse to make some spring-inspired cookies like the ones I'd stalked on Pinterest. I fell in love with the warmth of spring, and the simplicity of the designs. I wanted mine, however, to be a little untraditional; I wanted bright, bold colors and a variety of flowers -- like the ones I'd see in a beautiful Minnesota prairie.
These were incredibly time-consuming to decorate, but they lived up to their purpose -- everyone who received one smiled. Happiness, achieved.
