Cookie Day

I have been busy baking cookies! These are the maple ones. The recipe came from a 'Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Cookies' magazine from the fall of 1998. I hand painted the icing onto them with a wooden skewer. Half of the cookies are done. Still another 40 or so to make. I had to send my husband out for more butter this afternoon so that I can finish them tonight. He went over to visit a friend who is in a nursing home. Good thing he left. He was eating them faster than I could bake them!

Let me just tell you that it was a lot of fun, but not necessarily easy to paint all these pretty colours. How does Mother Nature do it? She has a gazillion trillion or some such infinitive number of leaves to colour each fall. I have a renewed respect for that woman!

For someone who isn't a real fan of cookie making you certainly have out done yourself. Those are amazing. Congratulations on a job well done!!!
