The good news is that they are both in bed, with the opportunity to try again tomorrow. Hey wait a minute. I get that too *smile*. And maybe tomorrow we'll all be better at rising up to what's required of us. Here's to hopin' *grin*.
On a lighter note, I DID want to show you a little Christmas card I designed for a friend. It's also a "save the date" card and I came up with this. Gotta say, I was pretty proud of myself - but I'm sure it's been done before *grin*. She was happy and that's really what matters - and I got her permission to post it *wink*. As for OUR Christmas card - I won't be posting that one up until they're in the mail *grin*.
It's been a VERY long time since I shared a recipe with you and as the Christmas season is around the corner - I wanted to share with you the ABSOLUTE BEST cookie recipe I have. At least I think so *wink*. They are crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside ... perfect with a hot drink and freeze perfectly.
Let me know if you love them as much as I do ...
375 for 12-15 minutes
makes a few dozen, depending on cookie size.
3/4 cup margarine
1 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp ginger
**you'll also need a small dish of granulated sugar to roll the cookies in
- cream sugar and margarine; add egg and molasses and cream well.
- sift dry ingredients together and add to the creamed mixture.
- roll into small balls
- dip the cookie balls into the bowl of sugar
- place on a cookie sheet and flatten with a fork
So go on, go make some. And me? I'm going down to the piano right now to take a few minutes of "me" time before I start digiscrapping while watching the hockey game *grin*. GOTTA love hockey.
Hope you have a fantabulous evening.
