Cookie Tulip Fields

Sometimes a story is told better backwards, so let's try that today and work our way from the end. I had just completed these tulip cookies and I wanted to gift some to our German neighbors.

Wait, wait, wait...don't go! I promise these pretty cookies aren't THAT hard, nor will they take you 18 hours. Unless...of course you have twins.
