Sorry! I don't have an excellent cookie recipe to share. I wish I could help you there, but I honestly don't bake from scratch and I'm okay with using the Betty Crocker oatmeal cookie mix. Having a bag or two around the house never hurts when you get iced in and it's too inhumanely cold outside to garden.
Today was one of those days. The boy and girl have both convinced themselves that they are too old for naps. The boy, at almost 6, I understand. The girl, at almost 3, is just trying to hang with the big dog. Inevitably, as the day wears on, we get cranky, groggy and generally combative, so we decided to make cookies to quell the rising squall.
The girl decided making cookies was hard work so she had to take of her sweatshirt.
They ate their cookies, scrumptious, might I add, and we then moved the party to include an early, early bath. After much splashing and general glee, the boy and I did some laundry while the girl went downstairs to play and the man braved the icy streets and went to the grocery. After 10 minutes or so of laundry, the boy got bored and went to play with his sister....who was not in the playroom as expected.
See. She's not there. We screamed her name and ran outside, upstairs, and in the back yard. I was almost in full panic mode. Maybe the man had taken her to the store...but she was wearing a night dress and couldn't go out like that. I went back to the playroom to look in the closets when....look through the window in the second partition of the doll house.....
Looks like we're not beyond naps after all.
The morning comes early, and I need a stout beverage to settle my nerves. Sweet gardening dreams.
