For some reason it took me a while to figure out that I should make cookies based on the book we were reading. Actually, it hadn't even crossed my mind until one of the other girls asked if I was bringing cookies based on the book last month (The Hunger Games trilogy--if you haven't read it, go get it now, and you can come look at the pretty cookies later). Sadly, I didn't have enough time to do cookies for that book club (will definitely be making mockingjay cookies for the movie though!), so I decided to start doing them for this meeting's book: Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman. The setting for the majority of the book takes place in Savannah, so I thought doing a postcard like cookie would be fun. Plus I was dying to try out the technique for the flowers. Check out the results below!
