last weekend, i gathered up mountains of flour and butter and sugar and chocolate and sprinkles and went to work baking cookies with (and mostly without) the lid kid elves.
i tried to keep my patience with their horrific use of space when cutting out each shape. they have an uncanny ability to leave exactly enough space between cookies to make sure you can’t fit in any other shape. even the candy cane!
more than a dozen times, a half a jar or sprinkles or more was generously applied to just one cookie. i tried to recover some of the abundance, but mostly just resigned to having to restock my sprinkle supply in the future.
so, that’s that. we have a billion cookies to give away. i’ve been handing them out left and right. we took some to the ladies at the gym that run the childcare yesterday, except when i got there, it was a bunch of new people that i didn’t recognize. so, i’ll try again today and hope that the regulars are back. anyhow. that’s the tale of the christmas cookies of twentytwelve.
