I feel like it was just yesterday when I made those apple rice krispie treats for my daughter's first day of school. To bookend the sweet year we've had with her teachers, I whipped up some cookies for them. My girl helped me pick out four cookie cutters — a crab (her favorite), a star, a water pitcher, and a moon. With a little icing and some creative thinking, the little packages of cookies turned out pretty cute. And for parents looking for an inexpensive but thoughtful way to toast your teachers, you can't beat sugar cookies but the temptation to eat them is overwhelming. Still I resisted.
