This year I coerced the Spawn into making Christmas cookies with me. He was a little trooper and put up with my Christmas cookie shenanigans replete with carols playing, and plastic cookie cutters. I am very thankful to the Spawn for letting me have that day of Christmas cheer (he got to play a fair share of videogames, too, so I know he stayed happy), and happy for us not ending up cracked out or cranky.
Granted we would have been done a lot faster if I could get more than one 15x10 cookie sheet in the oven at a time. Someday!
|Roll and flip. Roll and flip.|
|Cut out those shapes - as close together as you can!|
|Ready to go in the oven.|
|Ginger cookies. Notice the Airstream Custom oven. Teensy yet effective.|
*They got 3/4 of the way dry and then it started raining BUCKETS. Since the Airstream is a tin can, not much of the humidity made it back outside. Most of it got sucked up by my cookies. Only the few duds I had set aside for family consumption (another family tradition) survived the great humidity of 2011.
**even this one bit the dust. >sad face<
