What are men to Rocks and… Moss…
Nothing like a little shameless malapropism to get a post started on the right foot! (And if you know the original quote and where it came from, I probably already like you.) But it seems about right for this week’s cookies! After a recent order I had a little dough left over and I wanted to try a couple little techniques I had been drooling over all week.

I knew I had to try it, and that the moss would look beautiful with it! Here are some of the final results, but stick around– there’s a process/how-to video after the jump!
And now for the good stuff: watch them being made! 🙂
