It’s Grad season! Graduation is a special time to gather with family and friends to celebrate an academic achievement. There are so many familiar traditions with graduation. But, nothing stands out more than seeing everyone pose for pictures in their cap and gown. We have been making different versions of this set of graduation cookies since we started baking over 10 years ago. This set is versatile. The cookies look completely different when you switch up the colors to coordinate with school colors. We added the academic year and the graduates name for additional customization. Make a set of these cookies to share in that celebration. They also make a great gift for teachers and mentors. Don’t forget the tissues, and congratulations to all this year’s graduates!
