Cookie time

A few months ago, I saw this idea for "play dough cookies" on a couple of friends blogs(Natalie and Emily, thanks for the idea!). The original recipe is from Allrecipes.com. You basically make a sugar cookie type of dough, divide it into four, color each a different color, grab a little of each color and form into a ball, then you roll the dough between your hands to make a long snake, then twist it into a swirly cookie. Its really cute! I finally busted out the recipe out this week. After I had already told the kids we were going to make them, I realized I didn't have enough butter(oops!) so I ended up making do with what I had. This caused a slight problem seeing as that you have to roll the cookie dough and the consistency of my dough wasn't right. It kept sticking to our hands and just making a mess. I added more flour and eventually it kinda worked, but they still didn't turn out half as cute as everyone elses on their blogs. They kept falling apart. Oh well, we tried- and it was fun!

Ta da! Not quite as pretty as I hoped, but still cute! I love the idea of sticking lollipop sticks in them while they are cooling to make "lollipop cookies." We'll do that next time! And next time I'll make sure I have all the ingredients:)

The kids thought they were awesome!


WoW!

That's so cool. I love the idea of putting sticks on them to look like lollipops. The expressions on the girls faces are priceless. I like how the colors stayed the same when I tried the color thing once I think I overcooked the cookies because they were more brown yours look really good. Would look great in a Wizard of Oz kitchen I think. Good job everyone.
