What am I going to do today?
Bake cookies. Lots and lots and lots of cookies. I am so glad the grocery store is close.
I’ve always loved to bake cookies. Remember E? She and I have bonded over cookie-making in so many ways. I distinctly remember the day we compared our chocolate chip recipes, analyzing every ingredient and step in the process. Turns out we used the exact same recipe; the only think we could figure out that made the cookies different was that she washed her pans in between each baking.
I hate washing pans of any kind, so I never tried it to see if it would make my cookies turn out like hers.
Today is sugar cookie day. Complete with sprinkles, icing, and at least one run to Williams Sonoma. Even more than I love to bake cookies, I love to decorate them.
I may try to take pictures. Ha! We will see if that happens. I’m going to enlist our sitter’s help in the baking process. I’m sure it will be a lovely disaster.
And last but not least, I am so excited to have so many reasons to share cookies with friends: I am hosting a dinner party this weekend (perfect party favors!), a cookie exchange on Sunday at Christi’s house, a cookie swap next week at work, and then finally, Christmas!
Off to caffeinate. All this baking is going to take some energy!
Have you tried Demarle bakeware? I just discovered it a couple of months ago, and I love cooking and baking so much more. Aside from how evenly it bakes cookies, I’m most impressed with how easy it is to clean and store. Have a great time!!
If I were close by, I’d bring all my Wilton decorating tools and help!
you forgot to mention that half the time cookies were in our plan, we would end up eating the dough before we actually made the cookies! i love you 🙂
