Gale Gand's Butter Cookie Dough (perfect for cookie cutters)
In the next few minutes, a niece and nephew will be here to decorate. I felt I should bake the cookies before their arrival so they'll be cool. They are only 2 and 3 years old and will likely loose interest and I wanted them to return home with some of their handy work.
Well, I was wrong, they hung in there until we were done. The 2 year old, W, loved working with the gum drops and the M&M's. The 3 year old, K, loved the sprinkles and wanted no help. Big sister, A, kept things moving along. And of course my son, C, had a blast just having company. While the cookies dried, we played Candyland together and then played with the Thomas Trains while the older 2 built Mousetrap. I love the holidays, where we just "do stuff." We had a wonderful afternoon together while Mom got a shopping errand done!!
This dough, when rolled out thick, and accommodate a stick. Recipe soon, otherwise head to the Valentine's post with the heart shaped cookies on a stick.
