Well, we finally got around to making the cookies. Jared got the job of mixing the dough with the food coloring since the dough was a little hard (Jared has bigger muscles). While he was busy stiring in the red, yellow, and green, I attempted to figure out the machine. Santa had given me a cookie cutting machine-I don't know how else to explain it. But I took too long trying to figure out how to get the cookies dough in there. In the end, I just read the instructions over and over, and Jared caught up and figured out the machine too. What would I do without my smart engineer?
Jared had a hay-day cutting the cookies out of the machine onto the pan, so I just watched to make sure they didn't get burnt. The sugar cookies turned out really well and we got to make gold stars, green Christmas trees, and red poinsettas. I would consider our Christmas cookies a success for this year!
