Zippidee do da! This year’s round of 800 cookies is complete! Here’s a look-see at some of the delicious wonders that are now in my freezer, awaiting Friday’s Christmas concert at #1’s school.
Don’t they look festive? My favorites are these:
The Drop Sugar Cookies are subject to an upcoming experiment (AFTER Friday). I’m going to see if the batter will work with a cookie press! I’ll let you know. I do know that you can add stuff to the batter and it is yummy. I added a red/green/white jimmies mix to the dough, and topped with white crystal sugar. Sweet!
I did not make for this event, but also LOVE:
Cookie Icing/Frosting That Hardens to go on the Roll-Out Cookies
For sugars and decorations in rich colors and unusual shapes that you don’t have to buy in sets, I found Baker’s Kitchen, which I recommend. I also discovered Mengelsen’s wall-o-cookie cutters, and a friend recommended local Kitchen Collectables, 108/Harrison-ish, which I have not tried yet.
So, overall, I’m pretty happy with this year’s endeavor. With 35 hours and the cost of ingredients, I think I’ve surpassed my volunteering minimum for the whole year. “Done!”
