Recently we were sent a copy of Jenny Keller’s new book Eat More Dessert. If you are unfamiliar with Jenny Keller, she’s best known as a baker to the stars and creator of JennyCookies.com, Jenny Keller shows home bakers how to create easy, baked treats that are simple yet beautiful, fun, and delicious without too many steps.
Rattles from Seattle
You’ll be surprised how simple these little rattles are to make and how great they taste. Store-bought Oreo cookies are dipped in vanilla candy melts, sprinkled and tied with a bow. Stand them in Styrofoam covered in nostalgic baby shower mints.
