Rainy Day Cookie Production

milk & cookies, originally uploaded by Flying Time Designs.

Four dozen cookies for band camp, 2 dozen cookies for the orchestra kids, cookies for the elementary potluck, cookies for work, cookies for company…the life of a busy family requires lots of cookies!

This weekend I made a double batch of chocolate chip cookie dough, a double batch of chocolate cookie dough and a single batch of sugar cookie dough. I baked four dozen cookies then I–
•scooped the rest of the dough into 1 inch balls on a cookie sheet
• placed the cookie sheet in the freezer, uncovered, just until the dough started to harden (less than 10 minutes)
•threw the dough in labeled ziploc freezer bags, and put them in the freezer.

I take them out & bake them as needed allowing them to thaw a little first.

Hopefully I'll get some of my favorite recipes posted soon. I used coarse sanding sugar on the sugar cookies shown in the picture. I think it looks a lot prettier than regular sugar and it gives the cookies a yummy, sweet crunch.

National Sugar Cookie Day!

Wedding cookies, originally uploaded by Flying Time Designs.

Today was national sugar cookie day but I didn't realize it until it was too late to observe the holiday. These are the last sugar cookies I made. They were for my cousin's bridal shower back in April. Oh well! I'll mark sugar cookie day on my calendar for next year.

Hi! Thanks for checking out my new blog. I found this cute little cookbook at the antique store today called Cakes Kids Love by Betty Crocker. It was published in 1969. The cakes in this book are all so cute and most seem fairly simple to make (although I haven't tried any yet).If you click on the photos you should be able to read the instructions on the larger image. My favorite is the doll house cake.
