I am planning to make a cookie basket for my daughter's teacher for Teacher's Appreciation Day.

I am out of sucker sticks... icon_cool.gif Can I use the dowels? They won't burn in the oven?

NO, they do not burn..I use dowels all the time, because I make very big and very thick cookies, and dowels are the onlye ones that can support them. To me, that is even a better choice. That's what
Cookies By Design use..They do not use the paper kind..

Prett Cake, do you use the cake dowels as in for stacking? Thanks

Yes, I also use dowels for stacking.. I use at least 5-6 of them because I want my cakes tall, at least 6 inches tall. icon_smile.gif

That is such a great idea! Teacher's deserve something extra!By the way when is Teacher Appreciation Day? I though I saw that it was the 9th and Teacher Appreciation Week is the 7th thru the 12th. Is that right?

I'm baking cookies with my new cookie cutter (the cancer awareness ribbon) for a workshop at the hospital I work at, so it looks like I better bake a couple more dozen for the teachers!!

Any suggestions for designs? Maybe just some flowers will do fine. I'm hesitant to do the apple thing.

I use bamboo skewers for my cookie bouquets - they work a treat (and are thin enough to stick inside the cookie before baking, or attach with royal icing after baking!), plenty strong enough to support big, heavy cookies thumbs_up.gificon_biggrin.gif

I am planning to do a mixture of stars and hearts... I will draw some happy faces on some and write messages on the others. Like: #1 Teacher, Love My Teacher, etc...

I think I have a heart cutter....no star though. Hhmmm....might have to make a trip to the store!! icon_smile.gif I've been googling and thinking and I might just have to box them instead of making a bouquet. There are just too many teachers. Maybe I will just do a bouquet for my son's teacher, but I don't want to leave the other (gym, music, etc.) teachers out. Decisions, decisions!

Thanks!!

You know, I don't know which recipe you use, but I use Wilton's and its really yummy!!!! It makes LOTS of cookies, so you could do like 5 to 6 cookies per basket and have enough for everyone.

I always think it's cute to do square cookies and make them look like chalk boards, some apples, maybe that's all a little too cliche' oh well, teachers always think it's cute...because they know you made them especially for them and not that you just had some extra cookies laying around.

Here's the company Cookies by Design. They are everywhere. There is one close to where I live and they had a "Help Wanted" sign a couple of months ago.... I was tempted.... icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

I was going to give my son's teachers cookie bouquets for the end of the year/teacher appreciation gifts also. Ours is next Tuesday. I bought these cute (and heavy) candle holders shaped like tiki heads and thought about some flowers, a sun and some flip flops. It is pretty close to the end of the school year.
