OH DEAR KORALEE! WOWWWW! Your spring HAS arrived! When the local merchants bring out their wares for the season, WE KNOW IT'S COMING! Oh we had fabulous weather yesterday! I spent the whole day organizing and painting, but Koralee, at the end of the day, I showered and played my harp and for the first time, sat on my settee in front of my fireplace and just DREAMED AWAY!!!!! THAT MADE ME SOOOOOOO HAPPY! Yes, little things make me soar with happiness! Then, as my dear husband was entertaining a friend wayyyyyy back in the new room, I closed my French doors and took a snooze on that settee. I was so calm. NO SCHOOL MONDAY! Oh dearest, PLEASE NURSE those sniffles or soar throat NOW! GOTTA get some tea in you with a fluffy blossom on your plate!!! HAVE A TERRIFIC DAY SWEET ONE! Anita

Yummy! I love this time . . . when I step outside and see plants starting to sprout:-)

Simple Home said...

These were one of my favorite snacks when I was a child. The only way I'd eat coconut too. I haven't had one in a long time. I'm going to have to keep my eye opened for them. They look yummy!

Sewn With Grace said...

I could use those blossoms today. After a nice thaw and some warm weather, we are getting a snow and ice storm. Ugh! I'll dream of spring with you, Koralee!

Michaja said...

Oh la la these cookies look delicious which I could take a bite from it!!! Thanks for sharing the pictures with us :)

Oh your cakes looks so yummy and the soft colour is perfect. I love to bake but I have seen that we have not so much varieties in ingredients and frostings here in germany as you.
I´m happy that my blog makes you smile - this is a very big compliment for me and I enjoy it so much!

Have a nice week,

good morning sweet Koralee
we have blossoms...
thank you for reminding me
i have to make a stop
to see if they have arrived =)
they fit right in with your
lovely color pallet.

Barbara said...

Such a happy cookie treat sitting on your pretty pink. Is there marshmallow inside? They look so puffy.
I've seen the peanut butter ones and also saw Paula Deen make lemon ones, but I'm stumped by yours.
So pleased spring is around the corner for's been a really tough winter for a lot of the north.
Have a lovely week, my friend and I so wish I could have a cup of tea with you and your "blossoms"!

Sue said...

Oh, those are so pretty! I love coconut but my husband doesn't. We don't have these around sad!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Koralee,

It would be great to be able to join you for tea and your delicious cakes. The photos are so pretty and pink.


Gloria said...

My husband and I were out and about yesterday driving around and noticed all the new blossoms on quite a few trees here. They are a welcome sight!! SOOOO pretty....:)
Your sweets look very yummy and pretty too!!

I Love Pretty Little Things said...

I have never heard of Spring cookies before, but I am all for it! Our first sign of Spring, even when it is still snowing, is the opening of the root beer stand. The cookies look more tempting to me. YUM!

Unknown said...

no sign of spring here yet ... in fact, we got some MORE snow! 12-24 inches up in the mountains which made for a great ski day for our president's day holiday yesterday! i am loving those cookies! sooooo cute and tastey looking!!!! yummers! ;)

emily-kallista said...

Oh yes! we used to have these as an after-school treat sometimes.. we called them Iced Vovo's, and they used to be marshmallow until Arnott's changed the recipe to something not wuite as fantastic (hate it when they do that!) Spring is my favourite season.. here's to a wonderful weekend for all !
