Good Fences and Good Cookies




Before I share my (Good Fences) shots today I am joining in with a Facebook Group called, Fill The Cookie Jar.  This month's theme:  Fall Favorites.

I wanted something that reminded me of Fall and at first thought about doing something like an Apple Filled  Streusel cookie and then I found this recipe on www.swankyrecipes.com for Peanut Butter Streusel Cookies.  The "struesel" topping sounded pretty cool and so I got busy and made up a batch of these cookies. - I want to say that I did add a simple glaze of powdered suger, milk and vanilla to drizzle over the top of my cookies.  This was not part of the original recipe but I like how it added to the cookie.  I'll be making these again and not just in the fall.


And because one photo just isn't enough.....

Hope you give them a try.




-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So now it's time to join Theresa (The Run-a-round Ranch Report) for GOOD FENCES.

Since summer is almost over and fall is soon upon us (offically on the 23rd of Sept.) I thought I'd share a summer fence shot before it's over & gone for another season.



I spotted this fencing and thistle out on a walk to photograph the Pelicans earlier this summer.  I'm not sure what the other wild flower by the post is but it's pretty.

Here's a cropped version showing a little more detail of the fence, wire.


Hope you've enjoyed both the Good Fences and the Good Cookies.  Think I'll go have one now with a nice hot cup of coffee to start the morning off.

  15. Love the cookies, but that IS a nice fence, too. Even the barbed wire. I still like barbed wire even if it did attack me when I was a teenager (still have the scars to prove it!).

  17. "drizzle" made me salivate.

    The fence is nice but we battle those thistles tooth and nail.

    John had a bad fall yesterday so we will have a quiet weekend at home.

  19. Those cookies look scrumptious!

    I like thistles. They're unpopular because of thorns and being a *weed*, but the birds and butterflies love them.

  33. Those cookies look delicious Ida, and those fence photos are very pretty. I love the light in them.

  34. Gosh those cookies look wicked. I love the sun-dappled summer fence, and would be all in favour of trying to hold onto those summer vibes for as long as we can. Sadly, back in cold grey London, we're debating whether or not to put the heating on ... which isn't exactly where my late summer vibes should be leading me. All the best, Bonny

  35. The thistle adorned fence is fab Ida but the cookies look too scrumptious, oh my that glaze, every cookie should have a glaze :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. That is a pretty heavy-duty fence. Nice shots.
    I love your header, too.

  37. Well, this is a lesson in composition. You have a wonderful eye for beauty and part of that is the way you compose your pictures. I love this fence and thistle shot ... But on to more important things ... Cookies! They look delicious and I would definitely be trying them out if I weren't starting on my "Thailand Diet". I will be going to Thailand in February to my sons Thai wedding and I need to lose a few pounds, so it is definitely diet time. But I think your idea of a glaze over the Streusel is perfect especially because it will keep the streusel from falling off just as you are trying to bite into it. Great posts, Ida ...

    I love your fence shot too. Have a lovely Friday.

  39. Oh those cookies look delicious! And I love the idea of mixing some vanilla with the icing sugar.
    The contrast between fence and thistle is really cool. I like the difference in the textures and the idea of something structured and something growing wild. it's an interesting juxtaposition.
