anniversary cookies

This friday is Alex and my 3 year anniversary! Whoa! In many ways it feels as though we've been together for 10 years while at the same time it feels like yesterday things were just beginning for us. I'm so proud of our relationship and I feel so lucky to have him in my life and naturally, I'd love to show him how much I love him by giving him something on our big day. Alas, I am currently in a bit of a financial bind. Working part-time does not leave me with a lot of expendable cash and as crafty as I am, I don't want to give Alex something he will likely not use or (gasp!) throw away in a few months. You know?

So... I made a lovely card the other night (I know he'll appreciate and keep that) and I was thinking, why not make him some of his favorite cookies and put them in freezer bags so he can have them for months to come and have a nice treat in his lunch a few times a week. I'm hoping this will be a happy alternative to more conventional and expensive anniversary gifts, and he won't be overwhelmed by them either!

I've found a recipe at the my favorite stand-by cooking website smitten kitchen. Hopefully these cookies taste great!
