TWD - Dorie's Grandma’s All-Occasion Sugar Cookies

"The LORD is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? 
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?" 
Psalm 27:1


As usual, the TWD is Thursday with Dorie for me. I had the cookie dough made on Tuesday, then with friends we made the cookies on Wednesday, and now on Thursday I can finally post the cookies. Life is just too hectic to get things done in a timely fashion.


The dough was very easy to make, and very easy to roll out, cut and cook. I made the dough exactly as called for, but I think that I would like to add some flavoring, like nutmeg, or orange, or almond, .... I was not the one to actually roll out the dough, but those who did had no trouble at all, and I don't think that all of them had actually rolled out cookie dough before.

We all had fun making cookies. Here is Jake, who made the alien pizza, rolling out a pretty odd shape of dough. It seems he's at something like the alien again.



Merrideth and Abigail were the main rollers, but surely everyone got involved.


These two - Merideth and Jake
- are getting married on Dec. 20, 2008

And we also made my Christmas Chocolate Chip Cookies. We cooked the cut out cookies in the meile, and the chocolate chip cookies in the Lacanche electric oven.












Then when the cookies were mostly done, we ate cookies and drank milk.
