I was asked about making some cookies for the kids at church, rather than having an Easter Egg hunt after Mass on Sunday. The boys love to help me bake, so yesterday we fired up the Kitchen Aid.
I used this recipe from CakeCentral, and used Jell-O Cheesecake instant pudding. The cookies are wonderful. I didn't freeze the dough before or after cutting it out - I don't have enough freezer space right now (which is kinda scary, cause we have 2 chest freezers, too!). I used LOTS of powdered sugar under the dough for rolling out (works as good as flour without drying out your cookies) and then used a piece of wax paper on the top. Cookies are decorated with a slightly thinned out basic Buttercream frosting.
All I can say is oh boy am I tired. I had to wait for the boys to go to sleep before I could decorate them, so I didn't get to bed until about 1:30. And the hubby got stuck in Cheyenne because of the snow storm. I need a nap!
P.S. Don't you love the silence of pictures? You'd never be able to tell every other sentence out of my mouth started with "No, don't......" There's a reason I don't have any pictures of my 2 little chefs helping me.
And while you are at it, go see what other neat projects there are over at Tam's so you too can
