I started with the sugar cookies, figuring they would be the easiest:
Can you see the small chunks of dough all over?? The goofy dogs weren't sure what to think, they aren't used to seeing me in the kitchen. They did help keep the floor clean.
And here are the oatmeal raisin cookies I promised.
Here are the keepers:
They weren't fabulous. The sugar cookies were a little too sweet and the choc chip cookies were probably not cooked quite enough. They did have lots of love in them, and family was generous with their praise. Got all my Christmas gifts in for under $75 and some good fun was had by all. I'll say, if I have the choice, I'd rather have a job so I can spend a little more money and buy gifts. That was how I spent my day before Christmas Eve :0) Only took 6 hours to make 3 batches of cookies. I think I'll keep my day job (now that I have one). There is not a closet baker, inside me, fighting to get out.
