NTS: buy two more cookie sheets
This would have gone alot faster if i
a-had four instead of two cookie sheets
b-hadn't waited until 6 to start, and then not had enough confectioners sugar (4.5 cups is ALOT, but it was a trippled recipie)
c-hadn't waited until this afternoon to decide to make said cookies, after decideing this morning that i wasn't gonna have enough energy by the end of the day to make them.
d-had written down in the recipie, from last year, that the recipie really needed water. but last year sam screwed up the recipie and put in sugar instead of confectioners sugar, so well, wasn't a good way to judge. but yes, still needed water. and an extra egg. but tisana can eat these cookies (no milk, no milk products) so it's all good.
e-actually enjoyed being domestic for more than 5 minutes.
darxus is a dear for putting up with my bitchness when i get bitchy. i'm not an easy person to live with.
Yeah, I was having a bit of a hassle myself. Brown sugar wouldn't soften and lumped up, some of the dough (a good fist sized amount) jumped out of the bowl onto the floor while I was stirring (no, I tossed it). Bleah.
But it seems ok. Only about 4 dozen cookies, but oh well. It's something. Didn't have a whole lot of time. If I did, you'd have gotten butterscotch lace cookies, too.
Oh, and thanks for thinking of me. With so much else to eat there, you didn't have to. It's sweet that you did. :)
actually, it's the sugar cookie recipie that i had already :-) i just realized that you *could* eat it when buying the ingredients. then, when the dough was too dry, and crumbly, and i called you for advice but you didn't pick up your phone, and then i called my mom, she suggested putting milk in. and if there was already milk in the recipie, i would have added more, but by that point i realized you could eat them, and didn't want to un do that, and said so to her, so she said "what about adding water?"
water. right. i knew that. (i use to bake more than once a year, really i did.)
i kept rough track of how much water i ended up adding, and it was a bit over 3/4 of a cup. as this was a trippled recipie, i'm adding to the recipie, 1/4 cup of water.
so i didn't start out being sweet or anything, but once i realized it seemed prudent that i should. plus i think there are maybe other people who will be there that can't have milk or something, so it seemed prudent not to add milk. that and i rarely keep it in the house, so that would have required a 3000th trip to the store.
so far i have 90 cookies left (like i said, trippled a recipie for 3-4 doezen.) but i still have dough in the fridge. i also expect darxus to eat another or two before work this morning :-)
