These were from a Pillsbury Bake Off cookbook.....there's another contest I tried for MANY years with no success, but lots of yummy goodies along the way.
1. I'm so sorry you didn't make the DT but I am proud of you for trying!
2. Cookies look fabulous - can't wait to try them.
3. I wish I had your courage. It took a pep talk from Lydia for me to screw up the courage to post my cards for HYCCT last year. I wish I had the moxie to put myself out there & try for a DT. You not only tried but got to the very final round!
