I needed to set a whole day a side just to bake cookies cuz it takes forever. Today was that day. I went to the store to buy the ingredients and of course the store is out of the sugar cookie dough that I get which was on sale. I go to the next nearest store, find the cookies and also pay almost double the price. Ugh! Luckily, a couple coupons printed at checkout for me to save on something at a later time. That kind of made up for my cookie dough price.
I got home and got everything ready for baking day. I split the sugar cookie dough in half so each girl has their own. Each girl took turns rolling out their dough in Christmas shapes, put on gobs of candy then into the oven. We just bake the cookie with candy and do not use frosting. Frosting these cookies would take forever and they do not have the patience, nor do I to frost all those cookies. The girls were done with their part and wanted to play. The rest of the cookies I made were Magic Cookie Bars, Chinese Noodle Cookies, and Butterball Cookies.
After baking, I promise the girls they could build their gingerbread house kit that we got. Daddy helped out with that since I was exhausted from baking a cleaning up. I now have about 6 dozen cookies to eat!
