Cookie Baking

Last year for Christmas, the children got some really neat cookie cutters shaped like vehicles (Car, rocket, bulldozer, etc.). A couple of nights ago, Annika asked why we never make cookies, so I got out the cookie cutters and the kids recipe book and turned them loose on the kitchen. The only thing I did was operate the oven. Here are a few pictures and a short video.

The children decided to share the cookies with their swimming coaches and each one got to pick a special cookie for one of the coaches and deliver them. Unfortunately, I don't have a good picture of the finished, decorated cookies; but there was not a spot of cookie that was not covered in at least 1/2 inch of icing and sugar topping. The last picture shows the table under the cooling rack when they were finished to give you an idea.

** Note: When Jeremy says in the video "They look disgusting", and I reply "They look absolutely gross", this is a family joke as in "These cookies are not any good at all, you wouldn't like them. I'll just eat them all for you."
