baking with my buddy

pistachio shortbread with cardamom

owl+panther cookies are going into the swag bags for the speakers of a TEDx event here in holland on thursday so eleanor and i spent the day baking three different flavors of shortbread. i was worried about trying to bake a large amount of goodies while keeping eleanor occupied but as usual she was quite pleasant. i can't wait until she is old enough to truly help mama but until then she can keep me going with that smile.
