lemon drops

5.25.2008

Birthdays at our office are usually celebrated with cupcakes. For a while they were from Buttercup Bakeshop but recently we've moved onto Magnolia's. With the start of spring and coming close to summer, it is the time for birthdays galore. This past week we had a few on our floor alone. I decided to make cookies for one of my coworkers since we had our usual Magnolia's cupcakes.
