Longing for the cool, crisp, refreshing air of fall inspired me to do this bouquet for my mom's birthday which she celebrates exactly one week after my dad. She enjoys feeding her birds and providing them shelter, so I threw in the birdhouse to the mix. This was the first time I tried a chocolate cookie dough and was quite pleased with the results. I also liked the dark cookies against the fall colors. It adds a richness to the cookies.
