Holidays are right aroud the corner.
and guess what?
I have to work.
Saturday thru Tuesday…
Now I would say I'm not complaining , but I am.
I don't want to work 4 in a row.
Not over the holiday!
It pisses me off.
So, with that said, Ilin, Olive and I made cookies.
Shortbread and Gingerbread….
then we PAINTED THEM!!!!
I have never done this and it was so easy.
and we used a little paint mixing bowl
we made royal icing:
4 C. confectioners sugar
2 egg whites
beat the egg whites until firm, not stiff
add sugar and lemon juice, beat until smooth.
Frost the cookies, let them harden (this is why you use royal icing) I'm not sure why royal icing has to taste so bad…just ignore that part, because I never eat the cookies anyways.
Once they are hardened you can dip the brushes into equal parts food color and water and paint away.
make sure you put down plenty of parchment/wax paper…unless your kids are meticulously clean.
Yes, there is a zombie reindeer and a cookie with pubic hair.
I sure hope Santa is not offended,
he never brings me what I as for any way.
Enjoy your holiday!
