Today I turned the kitchen into a factory to make Christmas gifts.
I just realized that I made cookies for gifts one year before I even had a mixer. I have no idea how I managed to mix up the dough for 60 dozen cookies that year (yes, that’s right, I made 60 dozen. Baked for days.) I was much younger then.
I just took these right out of the oven. Yum!
After they cool a couple of minutes in the pan you have to let the cookies cool completely on the rack so the bottoms get nice and crisp.
After five dozen cookies I decided to stop and see the latest Harry Potter movie. Very good!
Now I’m ready to play Santa’s helper! My friend and next-door neighbor Kim got the first bag. She sampled them all for you. Her eyes rolled back into her head when she took that first bite. Then she groaned. I think that’s good.
So, all you lucky cookie recipients – you have a great present coming to you!
