Brad & I have a favorite dessert. We both share a passion for sugar cookies with almond extract icing. I decided to make some today to send to Zeke's school for his Valentine's party. I signed up at the beginning of the year to be room mother for his class and needless to say, I haven't helped out with ANYTHING. So, this is my first attempt at doing something "Room Mother-ish." I absolutely LOVe decorating cookies. I don't like trying to make the right thickness with the icing or creating the right color...but I do like to decorate once the icing is made.
So...after about 5 hours of cookie making...here is what we came up with. Zeke even made his own cookie. I was so impressed that he was able to write his name on his cookie. I have a hard time using that icing-squirter-thingy and I've had a lot of practice. Maybe there's a future in cookie making for him!
It certainly isn't a part of our diet...but I convinced Brad that he needed to have just one cookie that I made just for him.
