I’m not a baker. I’m not a good “teacher-gift-giving-mom” either. Today after I dropped Cayden off I thought I would make his teacher cookies to giver her when I picked him up. Nothing like last minute! I usually work best under pressure and last minute.
I got my recipe from this awesome blog full of great recipes. I was going to make the chocolate candy cane cookies. Sounds yummy, right!!!
The cookies look delicious and very festive. They also look super easy to make!
I wrote down all my ingredients, headed to the place from Hell this time of year – AKA as wal-mart.
Got home laid out all my ingredients. Pulled up recipe. Turned oven on and actually decided to read through the recipe before I started.
UM …. problem. The dough has to sit for two hours in fridge. I don’t have two hours. Dang I suck. No cookies for teacher today! Maybe I’l bring her cookies to start the spring semester!!
Lesson learned today. Plan ahead. Make teacher cookies the day before. Good thing Cayden had no clue about this plan of mine, so I only let myself down and not my kid!!!
