Cookies!

A lot of my friends are baking cookies today. It was a huge tradition for my family when I was growing up. I loved to decorate the sugar cookies. My favorite cookie of all time though was my mother’s German sweet chocolate cookies. I miss those so much!!

What are your favorites? Are you baking?

    Kim, I too grew up baking cookies as my mother was quite the baker! As I got older I started to give cookies as gifts to fellow employees, neighbors, etc. I would bake over a thousand cookies each year and have that oven running for 3 days straight!! I still bake the cookies, but on a smaller scale now. Family, friends & neighbors all have their favorites so I try to do those. But only 1 batch of each instead of 2 or more!
    My favorite is still chocolate chip cookies!

    My son learned very young to bake chocolate chip cookies. He loves to make them for his 2 little ones now. I haven’t baked a cookie in years but I sure miss the fun we always had making, decorating and then sneaking them off the platters!!

    Hermits are made with dates and are delicious. I am ashamed to say that I ate 3 date squares this afternoon. My tummy feels fine tho.

    I am trying to find Davey to cheer him up. He is hiding ’cause he had a rough day today. I just wish that people would be kinder to each other and stop wasting their time hurting others. If I find a nice Christmas tune, would you like me to share it with you. Snoopy taught me how to make a nice link so the Youtube doesn’t slow down the page. I will check back to see if you want some music while the baking of cookies is going on.

    Hey Kimmie, is it true that you get your cookies at the mall? Ohhhh I wont tell anybody, okay?

    I would love to hear your tune!

    I haven’t the time to make my cookies at the mall but I think it would be lots of fun!

    People do need to be kinder to others but I don’t see it happening much

    A cookie recipe from my Southern Justice!

    1 cup of water
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 cup of sugar
    1 tsp salt
    1 cup of brown sugar
    4 large eggs
    1 cup nuts
    2 cups of dried fruit
    1 bottle Jose Cuervo Tequila

    Sample the Cuervo to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the Cuervo again, to be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink.

    Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl.

    Add one peastoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point it’s best to make sure the Cuervo is still ok, try another cup just in case.

    Turn off the mixerer thingy.

    Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit.

    Pick the frigging fruit off the floor.

    Mix on the turner.

    If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaters just pry it loose with a drewscriver.

    Sample the Cuervo to check for tonsisticity. Next, sift two cups of salt, or something. Who geeves a s….t. Check the Jose Cuervo.

    Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts.

    Add one table.

    Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find.

    Greash the oven.

    Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over.

    Don’t forget to beat off the turner.

    Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the Cose Juervo and make sure to put the stove in the wishdasher.
    Cherry Mistmas !

    It’s been along time I know. I am good, thank you for asking. I have been lurking some, but too many personal items needing attention have prevented me from commenting anywhere. I have had no time to get involved in a conversation. Maybe I can get more settled and join in some.

    A defense motion for protective order was granted in regards to an interview with EquuSearch volunteer Joe Jordan (read ruling).

    The judge, however, denied the defense’s motion to destroy videos of family jail visits (read ruling) and their motion seeking dismissal of several counts for violation of double jeopardy (read ruling).
