This year we are thankful for the option to gather and spend time together to thank dear old dad on his special day. Aside from the corny jokes and the barbecue prowess, dads are really the rock of the family. They are problem solvers, they can fix just about anything, and they are where we go for sound advice on important decisions. Recognize the role your father has played in your life with sayings on cookies. Have you thought about making cookies for Father’s Day? You can turn one plaque cookie shape into several different cookie designs. Then unify the sayings with a unique color palette like this one with white, red, light blue, dark blue, and brown.
