Oh boy!! What was I thinking? We are doing a bake sale to raise some money for our Little Flowers group and I decided the moms would make cut out sugar cookies and then the girls could do the frosting. I thought perhaps 150 cookies sounded good and then we could also sell some chocolate covered pretzels.
I made the dough up the day before we were to do our baking. This is the recipe that I used and I made 6 batches. Luckily there were 5 of us who were able to get together. It was nice to have time just for the moms as it gave us all a chance to get to know each other a little better. We all took turns rolling out the dough and 6 hours later had 200 heart shaped cookies!!
A funny thought came to me after everyone had left my house. We have a wonderful kitchen at the church with a couple of big ovens. We probably could have cut off a couple of hours if we had made them there. Oh well, it was a nice day, but certainly something to remember for next year.
Our bake sale is next weekend. Can't wait to see how the cookies turn out!!
