When I was a kid my mom made a ridiculous amount of cookies for the holidays. My favorite cookies where the sugar cookies that she made for Halloween. I also remember that she would make the cookie dough the night before. I totally used the recipe from my mom’s cookbook.
I set everything out and had Lily add it to the bowl per the directions.
The first thing to go in the mixing bowl was the sugar.
And the 4 sticks of butter. Yes, I just said 4 sticks of butter.
Then we added the eggs and flavorings.
Then came the dry ingredients.
I hate adding flour to the mixer because I always make a mess. We added 5 cups of flour to the bowl and we were ready to turn the mixer on. I knew what was going to happen so I told Lily we need to start on the lowest speed and I also covered the mixer with a kitchen towel. But it never fails we still couldn’t keep all of the flour in the bowl. Does anyone have any tips for me on this topic?
Once it was done mixing I scraped down the sides and the beater. Lily was salivating because she knows what comes next.
I believe this is every kids favorite part!
Tomorrow we are making cookies!!
To this day Lily is still a little bit scared of the mixer when it is turned on and I can’t say that I blame her. If you don’t know about Lily’s big Kitchen Aid nightmare be sure to ask me sometime.
