cookie carnival :: june round-up plus the july cookie!

wow! we had lots of participants this month. thank you each for playing along. i really appreciate the effort everyone puts forth.
so, our JUNE cookie was the STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE COOKIE from martha.

i have to say, i really enjoyed these cookies. they were simple and i liked that. they were like biscuits. . . fluffy and sweet and fully of strawberry goodness. and they were not to be resisted. many of you talked about how they went totally south the next day, but i had no idea because ours didn't make it into the next day. too yummy!

i have no photo to show, but that's a good sign. we ate them faster than i could photograph them. i totally forgot. too busy saying, "mmmm." and it wasn't until later that i realized i had
blown it! booooo!

before we get into the round-up, let's also talk about next month. after the poll, the Lemon Ricotta Cookies with Lemon Glaze were the clear fave. here's the link to the recipe. have at it! get our post and photo to me by 7PM EST JULY 31 to be included in the round-up! thanks!

What a wonderful roundup. I'm always amazed at how varied the results and pictures are for the same recipe. There are just so so many variables that come in to play when baking!
