Cookies!

12/19/2011




Well my friends, you'll be impressed. I finally found the time to make those sugar cookies that had been half done for a week. Mila napped a good hour and a half and I smeared flour all over the counter and rolled dough like a mad-woman. The result: no Martha Stewart, but not half bad. I have to apologize though because I did not have the time to document each step. Plus, Matt's camera would have been covered in butter and flour. But, you can find the recipe here, courtesy of the magnificent Cooking Light.
I bought the sprinkles at good ole Target.
Happy baking my lovelies! xo

Ah, cooking and photgraphing is quite tricky! Won't this be a fun thing to do with the kids one day?! I like TAW's tradition of decorating on Christmas Eve. :)
