I owe an enourmous thank you to the talented Mari of the blog My Silly Little Thoughts. Mari baked and decorated these gorgeous cookies, packed them in a lovely tin and then sent them to me. I wish I could say that the cookies were admired by many but that is not the case.

For those of you who don’t know, Mari is the brilliant and creative mind behind Mischief Mari Cookies. Intelligent, talented and a damn good baker, Mari recently offered cookies to the person who could correctly answer a question she’d posed on her blog. I was one of the two people who correctly guessed that the reason why Mari had pigs on the brain was that 2007 is the year of the pig according to the Chinese calendar.

True to her word, Mari sent me these adorable cookies and I couldn’t have been happier. Thank you so much, Mari. You’re wonderful!
