Labor day weekend is a HUGE deal at my house. We wait all summer for Septemberfest - a three day festival of music, craft fairs, rides, Bingo and a party for lots of friends and family at my house. We live at the end of the street that the fest is on, so we practically live there for the weekend. So of course I needed to provide delicious desserts for the after party. I decided to do single serving snacks this year so that people could enjoy as they pleased.
One septemberfest tradition is my dad's hot pink Old Style hat. He's worn it every day of the fest for at least 20 years and so I decided to take our traditional sugar cookie recipe and make little hat replicas.
1 1/2 cupcs butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 T. vanilla
3 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
The cookies were a hit, as always!
Chocolate-Peanut-Butter-Cookie-Bars recipe, which I didn't eat because I don't do peanut butter, but everyone loved them (and they were so pretty!) - especially my grandpa!
