It was August when Food Network magazine contacted Cheri Kovacic of Cheri’s Bakery about making some cookies, and now one of her Kansas cookie creations finally is in the December issue.

“It was fun,” says Kovacic, who says she’s been contacted for a few other Food Network projects as well.

This time, the magazine wanted to feature a cookie from every state that represents each state.

Kovacic created two designs. The one the magazine chose to feature was one that showed Kansas sunflowers with elves in them.

The one Kovacic liked best, though, featured the Keeper of the Plains in a snow globe.

She says it “was really awesome and special to us.”

Though Kovacic will showcase the cookies at her shop at 2121 N. Tyler, she says she won’t be making them regularly unless a customer wants to order them specially.

“They’re both very labor-intensive designs.”
