Autumn CookieScape

From outer space to our own beautiful planet. So beautiful in fact as to be inspiring in all ways, for all times, and for many artists, such as the Hudson Valley's own Thomas Cole. It was at his studio, that I held his brush and emerged myself in the treasures of his workspace, diverse and eclectic. From small stones and tiny skeletons, which were a filagree of their own to the colors of his still fresh looking palette, what a majestic display of visual goods. Cole painted landscapes, most famously and his breathtaking work has inspired me for many years. In this cookie landscape I take elements of our beautiful views and interpret them in cookie dough. Here I include a candy river, for that watery look, the shine on the light of the water enhanced by some deft food color strokes of my own. Our Hudson Valley views are like a box of KIX cereal, seen from a distance and the colors of this splendid season portray Fall's final dance in a furious storm of reds, oranges, yellows, greens, and browns before they drift to the ground and we enter winter!  Let us celebrate the beauty of the season with yummy tastes and cookies! We are ready to make any occasion a special one indeed, looking forward to working with you over the upcoming Holiday Seasons!
