A Roundup of the Best Homemade and Decorated Cookies

I am very much in a cookie state of mind!  First off, my husband and I are currently on a diet so cookies are a forbidden pleasure, which makes me think about them and dream about them way more than the average person! Secondly, yesterday was Homemade Cookie Day, so I had it going on all over Facebook.  Thirdly, I am on point to make some very special cookies for the sweet table at my niece's wedding in 3 weeks.  If all that isn't cookie pressure!

So I've given into the temptation of those way more than average thoughts and dreams and have scoured the web for the most enticing and tasteful cookies I could find! Now I'm inspired to get through my diet and have my first indulgence, and to make the most beautiful and tasty cookies for that very special table on October 25th!

Enjoy viewing these, and if you are inspired enough to try them, please let us know your results (comments and pictures please!)

These Chocolate Rolled Cookie Hearts, decorated in my niece's wedding colors, would be perfect!

Or these Hand Painted Valentine Cookies would look beautiful on a wedding sweets table!

Then there are always Classic Snickerdoodle Cookies
(I might just make these immediately following this dumb diet!)

Another favorite and a lovely look for the sweets table, these French Filled Macaroons are a definite consideration!

And for the kid and chocolate lover in all of us, I would totally go for these S'more Cups!

(My final two selections are heart shapes again, since I'm in wedding cookie mode.)
The first, Linzer Sandwich Cookies, have always been a favorite of mine for Christmas.

And, saving the best for last, these Salted  Chocolate Cinnamon Shortbread Hearts sound amazing!
These, I will be making for sure!

Enjoy and have a happy day!
