These are such a thoughtful thank-you gift. No doubt she will be floored when she receives them and/or reads this post. I love your puffy balloon and I adore the bike.

Jessica @ Jessiker Bakes

Oh! These are so cute :) Love that red balloon!

I am coming to MN to apprentice you! I will be on the next plane. These are almost as adorable as you!

Jessica @ How Sweet

Those are just so adorable!

megan @ whatmegansmaking

Love these! How in the world did you do that cool lettering for "a cup of Jo"? I think you get more talented with every cookie :)


This is amazing!!!


Excellent as always. :)

What a great idea. Especially this time of year. Sometimes in the busyness of life we don't stop often enough to give someone something from our kitchen to bless them, to thank them or to show them our love. Great idea! And super cute cookies.

Robyn | Add a Pinch

What a great idea! I love it!!!


Just so beautiful!


Jo is going to loooove you even more than she already does! How sweet!
Your fine print lettering is so amazing! I cannot even begin to figure out how you do that! So talented!


They are so cute! And I missed your feature there! Off to find it! (I love her blog and she has a GINORMOUS audience! Good for you!!)

It's so lovely that you took the time to make these charming "appreciation" cookies. You set an excellent example for all of us in the way you graciously give back.

Blessings to you always!


These are fantastic - I'm sure she'll be floored. I actually found your blog through her post :-)


this is a fusion of two of my favorite sites, and i love it! :)

I read her blog also, love it!


Oh,my good so darling!!!


So, so sweet of you! And the cookies are amazing, as usual! It simply baffles me how you write so neatly with a bag of icing--just blows my mind!

And I'm sure I speak for many: I'd consider it an honor to receive some of your cookies!! ;-)

Jamie | My Baking Addiction

Such pretty cookies and what a thoughtful gift.


LOL, I was just thinking, you are about to get a lot of REQUESTS!

Baking In Brooklyn

I love your cookie designs! They are always so cute and heart felt.


She will love your cookies. I used to read Jo, thanks for reminding me to get back into the habit!


Goodness! You did a fantastic job with the decorating! They are gorgeous!


So cute, Amanda! I, for one, would be delighted to get your cookies, and I'm sure she'll feel the same. So heartfelt.


I'm so impressed with your decorating skills. These came out great.


sigh. i can't draw a bike with a pencil and paper, and you can knock one out with an icing tip. i bow to your talent, amanda. :)

marla {family fresh cooking}

OK, the day I see Family Fresh Cooking graphic cookies on this blog is the day I KNOW I have made it BIG!! Wow, Amanda - these cookies are gorgeous! I must check out your friends blog now as she sounds like quite the interesting gal :)

Stephanie Meyer (Fresh Tart)

Again with the perfection!? Girl, you rock cookies harder than anyone else in the world, these will blow Jo's mind. LOVE them!


Stunning as ususal, Amber! I heart the bicycle one!


AMANDA!!Not Amber. Sorry, I was talking to my future sis-in-law on Skype and she is Amber. Flipping between screens late at 11:30pm-Bad idea!

But again these are stunning Amanda! Sorry for the typo!


Wow - what an absolutely thoughtful and awesome gift! I love that you did this! I feel strangely close to my "online friends" as well. My online community feels like a group of girlfriends that I would normally get together with (if we all lived in the same place, that is). Heck...we're sending Christmas cards to one another, doing ornament exchanges, etc! I love being able to connect with others and to share with one another!


Hi Amanda, gorgeous work!
Are those decorated cookies soft or crispy? Mine always get soft (too soft I should say) after flooding and the drying process, brazilians like them a little crispier and I am having a hard time keeping them crispy after royal icing them. Thank you for sharing your amazing work and recipes with us! Blessings! Karina

joanna goddard

you are amazing!!!! thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!


This is such a brilliant idea. I love seeing how talented you are and how you are sharing that with others!


Oooooo these are delicate yet luscious! So personal. Love them.


omg this is so sweet! I love cup of jo & it makes me so happy to see all the other people who love it too! happy holidays :D


Amanda, You're amazing:)
