I've been away from blogging recently. I had a little too much on my plate for a bit between work and family, illness and even an ER visit. All is well now. But not to fear... although I haven't been online, we have still been having a ton of fun!
This time of year is so much fun. We've already had a snow storm - the first for Ziva and the first for Zayit to really get out there and enjoy. Zayit was so excited to put on his snow gear (a pleasant change from last year when everything was such a struggle.) We went sledding in our yard and made a snowman. Who knew it was so difficult to make a snowman!
|Dude helping Miss Kitchen Aid get her job done|
|Mmmm.... dough is good Mommi|
|Dude working hard to roll out the dough|
|Even Daddy got in on the fun rolling out the dough!|
|Ready to decorate!|
Mommi: "Zayit, the frosting goes on the cookes"
Zayit: "No Mommi, I'm just eating it!"
Our recipe was given to us by a friend:
5 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whip together butter and sugar, beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients and chill until somewhat firm. Roll out and bake 7 minutes at 400 degrees. Yummy! I found that the thinner cookies were a bit crispier than I prefer and started rolling them out a bit thicker - maybe 3/8" thick. The frosting is just confectioner's sugar and a little milk.
