I also made mittens, but I don't know where those pictures are!:( I love, love, love decorating cookies and when all the right pieces come together...even oven heating, chilled dough, icing consistency, and the right shades of color....it can be a glorious experience for me. I get so happy. The kids wanted to get their little grubby hands on these but only Daddy was able to be my taste-tester. Otherwise, which kid would you choose? Then you have to give everyone a cookie making your number go down by at least half a dozen! Sheesh!
I checked my cupboards for tins...I really like tins...to store the cookies in. This led me to run to my local thrift store to check for tins there. I was wondering what all the hubbub was about with so many cars in the parking lot. Turns out yesterday was a VIP day. Having a VIP card would get you 50% off all merchandise! I unfortunately never signed up to get a VIP card. A nice gentleman was kind enough to let me use his VIP card so I could get the discount. Talk about Christmas cheer!!
One of my favorite purchases yesterday was this AWESOME cast iron mold. You can make just about anything bread-y in this thing....cornbread, muffins, cake, cookies, candy, or brownies.
Filling the molds took a bit of a trick...cake or cornbread batter would work better...more runny. I filled them right up to the top.
|This was taken when I used the cooking spray...total fail!|
Here they are...the little cuties!
I decided to dress them up a bit so I did this...
I hope your baking is going along nicely and that your oven doesn't need a new thermostat! Oh, the conditions we work in out of love....(eye roll)!
