I love to bake.
I was Suzy homemaker today. I baked and decorated spring/Easter cookies with my mom today. I got the sugar cookie recipe from the Food Network. It was the Alton Brown sugar cookie recipe. It got good reviews, so I thought I'd try it. They are yummy. I added vanilla like many reviewers suggested. I also made the royal icing that goes along with it. I divided the icing into different bowls and appointed those bowls certain colors with food coloring. Then put the individual colors into sandwich ziplock bags and sealed it up. I then snipped a oh so tiny hole in the corner and went crazy decorating. The icing dries hard in about a half hour after decorating.
We decided to have Easter on Saturday, because on Sunday everybodys church schedules didn't allow everyone to be together at the same time. Hubby and I are the sinners of the family and don't attend chuch. Surprised? I'm all about Spring, the Easter Bunny, and all cute pastel things, and fun food. We also have our art opening this weekend, so cookies will be taken there also and used to help fill a table of refreshments.
Let the good times roll.
