Sugar Plum Fairy

One Sunday. Two kids. Three kinds of cookies. Four lucky neighbors who received an in person delivery and squeals of “Hot Cookies!”

Some people let their dogs clean up spills in the kitchen. We just use our toddler.

Leo showed great restraint, but Fern, who has no patience for cooking things like toast, did not see the point of this whole “baking” thing.

How to fix a mid day sugar crash? Eat MORE cookies!

As a kid, do you remember how LONG it used to seem, waiting for cookies to come out of the oven? It only takes 10 minutes, but  I remember it seemed like an eternity. What to do when time stands still?

Puppet show!

Mexican Hot Chocolate Snicker Doodles

Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows (to die for!!!)

Mexican Wedding Cookies

1c butter or margarine
1/2c powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 c flour
1/2 c chopped walnuts

Cream together butter/margarine and sugar. Work in vanilla. Add flour and nuts. Shape into small balls. (If dough is sticky, let chill until easy to handle). Cook on ungreased cookie sheet for 20 min. at 350. When cool, sift powdered sugar over the tops.

How was your weekend?

I’m reading this instead of getting my kids to school…it has been one of those mornings, dog poop and pee on the carpet, one kid in timeout for something they didn’t do (the other kid lied)……arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
