A Baking Tip From an Unprofessional Baker
Earlier this week I posted about sugar cookies. And cookie cake. I also posted about football and how to grab shoes if you can't make a tackle.
Only the sugar cookies are relevant to this post. I was just providing a quick "post recap" for any readers who aren't up to speed.
My friends, family and beautiful blog readers (B.B.R.) know I love to bake. I have a deep and sincere love for simple sugars.
I take my simple sugars seriously.
A quick tip for perfectly shaped sugar cookies is to re-cut the cookie right out of the oven with the cookie cutter to create crisp edges.
Even the best sugar cookie dough will produce cookies with a "soft" edge. When I want my cookies to be uniform (such as the 40 football cookies I made this last Saturday), I re-cut the cookie right out of the oven.
I have mastered the art of appeasing munchkins while not really giving into their demands. It's a tricky but necessary trade only years of "mommying" can teach.
Happy Munchkins = Happy Mommy.
