Last night Hannah, Rebekah and I tackled making Christmas cookies. I don't particularly care for sugar cookies but I found a peanut butter and ginger cookie recipe from Hershey's Holiday Recipes. We had a ball making the dough and rolling it out and cutting out the shapes. The cookies didn't turn out that great. They had a good taste but, they stuck to the cookie pan horribly, though directions said not to grease the pan. I also believe that rolling the dough to only an 1/8th of an inch was too thin. The cookies were very crisp, though not burnt. I think this recipe is worth a do-over. I will probably reduce the amount of flour used, and of course, grease the pan. Anyway, the fun part came afterwards when we decorated the cookies. All rules went out the window. Partaking in one of these cookies promises the onset of a diabetic coma.
- I'm an outside girl that loves horseback riding, hiking, camping,or anything that involves the great outdoors. I from VA though I currently live in Selfkant-Havert, Germany. I drink excessive amounts of coffee. My imagination often runs away with me usually to an awesome horse farm that is self-sustaining where I teach girls how to mesh being athletic, tough, and leadership quality without loosing that gentle and quiet spirit. According to Suellen from "Gone With the Wind," "You can always tell a lady by her hands." I believe there is some truth to that statement. A lady should be strong and capable of caring for her family, gentle enough to quiet tiny tears, ferocious enough to scare away monsters lurking on the bed, and capable of hosting the next ball. I really love having fun doing things on the adventurous side, and the more dangerous the better. I also enjoy drawing and writing some. I absolutely LOVE Traveling and am drawn magnetically to other countries and adventures!!
