BACK TO SCHOOL WEEK -- Sweetly Sharpened Pencil Cookies

Welcome to Day 4 of
at Rook No. 17

Today's post is as sweet and "sharp" as its author -- Lisa of Moore Minutes.  Lisa's blog is full of creative ideas for entertaining, decorating and celebrating the seasons.  You'll find recipes, crafts, and lots of great party ideas.  Lisa is one smart cookie and I'm delighted to have her here today with her idea for Sweetly Sharpened Pencil Cookies.


I am excited to be sharing on Rook No. 17 today!  I know there will be a lots of "back to school" treasures to find out this week for us to tuck into our pockets!
Lately "Back to School" has been the chorus of friends and family as the conversation buzzes about fresh haircuts, new clothes, and the wide-eyed anticipation of our little loves walking into the big school doors with sharpened pencils and backpacks in tow.
I wanted to send my boys off with exciting treats snuggled into their pockets...
Sweetly Sharpened Pencil Cookies.
(Every part of making these cookies was fun except for the clean up. )
I got on this cookie craze thanks to Bake@350 , an incredible blog full of amazing cookies! She has amazing ideas too and I'm so thankful for her tutorials. I used a ruler to make the pencil shapes because I didn't have cookie cutters and I used chocolate chips for the lead.
