A beautiful balance between cake and fudge...Guinness Brownies are definitely as Oscar worthy as the compelling nominated film The Imitation Game.

Cherry Blossom Tea Cookies

Craving something with a zap of sweet cherry and a zing of savory? The Ninja Baker’s cherry blossom cookies are a pretty-in-pink pick-me-up from a 4 o’clock slump!

The cherry blossom shapes were created via my cookie press purchased at Williams-Sonoma. Softer dough seems to work best in the cookie press. However, the cherry blossom cookies will spread so do place them in the freezer overnight.
