A Christmas Cookie Disaster.

Yesterday my brother Andrew and I spent the afternoon making Christmas sugar cookies. It was a disaster. A complete disaster. We had so much fun during the process though, that it didn't matter how they turned out.

We used a pre-made sugar cookie dough. It was so sticky that we had to use a lot of additional flour in order to be able to work with it. Then when the first batch of cookies finished baking, they had spread so much it was impossible to tell what each of the shapes were. The second batch burnt. And finally, on the third batch we figured it out. Just on time too, because we were eating all the cookies from the previous batches that didn't turn out.

Next came the decorating. We put our frosting in zip lock bags and cut a small piece of the corner. This way we could add details to them more easily. It definitely did not turn out how we envisioned. I assumed that it was like putting glitter on top of glue. Then you give it a little shake and all the glitter perfectly covers the glue. Nope. Not. At. All. Instead of the sprinkles only sticking to the frosting, they stuck to the whole cookie. It didn't matter where the frosting was. In the end, we smothered the cookies in frosting and doused them with sprinkles. Andrew and I do not plan on taking up cookie decorating as a profession. It was really nice to spend time together though (isn't that what this season is all about?!) and had lots of laughs!

^^ The only one that turned out semi-normal looking. ^^
