Valentines Day...

Well, for me Valentines Day was really Singles Awareness Day (S.A.D.) **Sigh** No big plans for me other than to make beads, a nice gift to myself. My daughter on the other hand has a boyfriend, and she wanted to make him cookies. Hard to do when he's hanging around so she ended up making them at about 11 pm Saturday night. She planned to use her friends grandma's "best sugar cookie recipe", but when she mixed the dough it was wayyyy too soft to roll out. Alas, what she didn't realize was that there are rolled cookie recipes and drop cookie recipes, she was using a drop cookie recipe. So it's midnight and her cookies are failing. Somehow her cookies problem is my mine now, I'm the mom, I know it all, right? What to do, what to do. I suggested molding them with the coookie cutter, but they spread out oo much in the oven. So she used the cutter on the hot cookie, that seemed to work. So she ended up spreading the dough out on the cookie sheet, baking it, then cutting out the cookies with the cutter. Crisis averted, so I went to bed. I don't know how late she was up decorating, but here are the results. I think they came out really cute.
