A former co-worker and friend saw my recent bee and beehive cookies and reached out to see if I would have time to bake cookies for her daughter to give to her teacher as an end of year gift. The teacher, Mrs. V, refers to the class as the “Busy Bees” so it only seemed appropriate to give her a box of bees and beehives. For these beehives I prefer the buttercream frosting because it gives the cookie some texture plus this is the best tasting frosting in my humble opinion.
I put together just over 1 dozen cookies in the perfect white box with a cellophane window on the top so you could see the cookies from the top. Tied with white and yellow tulle and a thank you hangtag these made the perfect end of year teacher thank you gift. Just thinking about the smile these cookies would bring was well worth the time required to bake and decorate each one.
