Every year at Christmas-time our family gets together and has “baking day”. We make a list of all our favorite baked goods and we bake them all day. We get covered in flour, sugar, food coloring and frosting and then we get to snack on as much of the resulting treats as we like. It’s a good day.
For many years the only treat I ever requested we make was sugar cookies. And I was the only one who requested it. The reason for this is because in my head I always had fantasies of our sugar cookies turning out exactly like the big, fluffy, pink frosted ones in the store. Every year I was wrong and every year I was the only one who still thought our cookie recipe would magically turn out to be fluffy and soft, hence why I was the only one requesting them.
If, however, we had made cookies as good as the giant soft vending machine kind, I think the whole family would’ve voted that sugar cookies be made every year because who doesn’t LOVE the Original Pink Sugar Cookies??! Nobody. And if someone doesn’t, we don’t want to know them.
