When I was growing up, my mom and I always set aside time to bake a batch or two of cookies. Mmm, I can almost smell them now . . .
Oh no wait, we took time to eat cookies. Screw baking – that takes effort, so we saved it for special occasions when society expects you to make things from scratch, like Christmas and elementary school bake sales.
These days, I just cut to the chase and eat the raw dough directly from the tube. But there’s still part of me that believes cookies taste better hot from the oven, especially when they’re shaped like wreaths and snowmen.
That’s probably why so many people find recipes like this one for snowflake sugar cookies by Pineapple and Coconut so appealing. The fancy icing probably doesn’t hurt, either.
CraftFail reader Sarah decided to bake up a batch, and by the time they were ready to pop in the oven her hopes were high and her taste buds were ready.
So far, so good! Then it was just a matter of waiting patiently while the sweet aroma of sugary goodness filled the air. A few minutes later, and her adorable, holiday-themed treats were baked! She pulled them from the oven, and . . .
Ohhhhh. See? This is why I just eat them from the tube. But all’s not lost – just pretend you were making cookie versions of Christmas toys . . .
