Funfetti Blossoms - Mother Thyme

I am throwing a party on MT today.  Who’s ready to celebrate?

One thing I love about food blogging aside from talking about food all the time is that I get to meet some fantastic people.  And although I am a busy mom that doesn’t have much time to spend on social media making connections with other bloggers, I still have been fortunate to get to know a few bloggers that I truly adore.  My good friend Dorothy who is the crazy talented voice behind the wildly popular blog Crazy for Crust has been a close blogging buddy of mine for a few years now.  Her mouthwatering sweets inspire me.  The ideas she comes up with are brilliant.  If you are looking for some sweet treats that will rock your world you need to check out her blog, it is ah-mazing. 

Crazy for Crust is turning 3!  To celebrate I created these fun and easy Funfetti Blossoms.  They remind me of some of the yummy treats Dorothy has featured on Crazy for Crust like these Funfetti Gooey Bars that I still dream about at night. 

These Funfetti Blossoms are a fusion of a soft and buttery funfetti cookie and everyones favorite peanut butter blossom minus the peanut butter then topped with a chocolatey kiss.  A fun treat to make for any celebration.  And since sprinkles make any treat more festive, you can switch out the colored sprinkles to match the occasion.

    These cookies are so pretty! Happy 3rd Birthday Crazy for Crust!

    I love.love.love books, so it would be a tough decision on which I would order. There are a few books I’ve wanted to read that my local library doesn’t carry, so I would probably order one of those…
