I have spent today making 8 different kinds of Christmas cookies – well I have one more batch to bake although the dough is chilling in the fridge. I have used more butter today than I have the whole year combined. However, I AM a trained scientist and as such, I have made several important observations.
1. You know you have been sampling way too many cookies when your teeth start to hurt.
2. SO, FH, and DHs are excellent cookie taste-testers.
3. Cookiekinesis: the process by which by cookies that have merged together during baking are separated. The mechanism is neither cleavage furrow or cell plate formation – rather it is by spatula!
4. And that I really really love parchment paper. Why didn’t anyone yell me about this amazing substance???
One more batch to go! I swear my blood is pure sugar at this point!
