Tea-Time Snickerdoodles!

I have had a long-time favorite holiday cookie that my great-grandmother, my "grandma", and my mom all made when we were growing up.  Nothing fancy, but they would simply add a bit of anise extract to a regular snickerdoodle recipe, and it would make them SOOOO much tastier with a cup of hot cocoa or hot tea!  I am told by my coffee-drinking friends that they are delicious with that, too!
Digital Delights is sponsoring a challenge on the SNR blog that requires a favorite "sweet" treat recipe for the holidays, combined with a [project using the adorable little gingerbread image (provided by Digital Delights!) 
Here is my project that I made to give to my mother. She loves to remember the old days and her mother's recipes!
I love the 50's look of the papers and doilie. The sketch I used was from this week's challenge over at Skipping Stones.

The papers used were the Paper Studio's, Heartwarming Holiday; Doily is from Sunny Side Up; Bazzill scalloped edge; and the adorable little metal cookie cutter and rolling pin is "Dress It Up".  The Digi Delights image , "Oopsy Daisy" is colored with Copics and highlighted with Stickles and white fabric paint for icing. The "buttons" are from The Stamp Doctor.
This project is also entered in the following challenges:
Easy Crafts (Christmas)
Your Next Stamp (clean and simple)
Penny's Paper Crafts (Merry Christmas)
Stamps R Us
Crafty Ho's (Red and Green)
Oh Alice in Wonderland Challenge! (Red, Green, and in my case, Brown)
