My daughter's school holiday party is today. When sign-up time came around for food I volunteered to make the cookies, because really I wanted another excuse to do holiday baking.
As Aurora loves anything with icing on it, I just planned to make a basic sugar cookie with icing and sprinkles. But once the dough was made and it was time to bake them, I couldn't not make them shaped. Seriously. I tried.
And then I iced them by drawing a snowflake pattern. All the while I was chanting to myself "they're only 4-year-olds..." But, nope, I couldn't stop myself.
I added blue sprinkles, although I think I might have liked them better without. But, I figured the kids wouldn't mind a bit more sugar.
I won't share the recipe because honestly I wasn't overwhelmed with how they tasted. A bit too eggy. I've made them before but with more icing, so maybe that masked the flavor. Now the dilemma is do I use the rest of the dough and make some for sending to friends or trash it and try again?
