You have to love it, when by 9 am, you find yourself immersed in cookie dough, icing and sprinkles. It was too cold to take the kids outside and my oldest really wanted to make cookies like the ones in a book he had, so we made shortbread cookies. And I hate making that kind, as I can never get the right consistency so they dont' crumble. This time was only successful because I added milk and they are 5/8" thick. But the boys had a great time and I ate way too many yesterday (9) but who is counting!
