An astonishing discovery...

Well, maybe more surprising than astonishing, and maybe more of a realization than a discovery, but still...
I made a treat today, about which I will post tomorrow. Part of this treat, though, involved cutting into even pieces. This is not something which I do well. I seem to be incapable of cutting straight lines, let alone even pieces! I have tried rulers, I have tried guidelines, nothing helps. So I thought cookie cutters would be in order. Best way to make even pieces, right? Then came my realization... I do not have cookie cutters!! I have a single cutter - in the shape of my favorite team's logo. Love it as I do, it is a little big for what I wanted.
So that was my baking eye-opener for the day. It has taken me this long to realize that I must not make that many cookies, as I can't make them in fun shapes. This is something that absolutely must be fixed before too long... Little Girl will need to be able to make cookies - or at least cut out clay shapes...! Hopefully this "problem" will be solved soon... Until then, improvisation is key, along with tolerance for uneven cookies!!

  1. Drop cookies are just as good as shaped cookies! Remember that and repeat it when you need to hear it. ;)
