I’ve been sharing some fun recipes this week from a wedding shower we hosted last weekend and I tempted you yesterday with pictures of these delicious Sugar Cookie Pops.
These fun cookies on a lollipop stick can be served unadorned for a wonderful after school treat with a glass of cold milk or all fancied up with icing and sprinkles for a fabulous party treat. The cookie mold that I used makes them quite simple; a great recipe to enjoy preparing with your children.
You can find the Sugar Cookie Pops recipe and technique below but I also wanted to share a few fun pics of our first day visiting our daughter and her family in London – as you can see in the pictures, we’re quite smitten by our three sweet granddaughters! We landed on British soil bright and early this morning and had a wonderful day enjoying the city, the beautiful fall weather and reuniting with family.
London is a fast-paced, vibrant city with a myriad of fun things to do. We love just meandering along the lazy flowing Thames, walking both the narrow and the busy bustling streets, checking out interesting shops, restaurants, lovely parks and a plethora of amazing historic sites. Today we discovered an incredible new deli/cafe called Ottolengi (amazing as you’ll see in the pictures!) where we picked up a delicious lunch and picnicked in St. Jame’s Park near Buckingham Palace.
– this is why we loved discovering Ottolengi…….
We were able to catch the tail-end (literally!) of the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace….
