Sometimes I’m a day late & a dollar short.
This particular day turned into two days, but everyone is still sleeping, so I’m safe for a few more hours.
I was up late, making cookies for neighbors & friends for Valentine’s Day tonight, & I crossed into the next day.
Why am I blogging this at 1:00 am?
Because I had a sugar cookie epiphany. I finally had a few free moments of quiet to myself & was amazed what my mind came up with – several epiphanies, but only one regarding cookies.
So here it is:
I took my favorite standby sugar cookie recipe, HERE & just made normal cookies.
(I did substitute the vegetable shortening with coconut oil. All of it, & liked how they turned out, but that’s another story).
As the cookies baked & I saw the cute hearts begin to lose their cute shapes & tight lines, the epiphany struck.
After cooling the cookies, but before they were too cool, I took my trusty cookie cutter (the one I had just cut them with), & I cut them again. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it before, but suddenly, I have a ton of UNIFORM cookies! Which look great. & will be easier to frost.
I like the crisp lines, & am thrilled with the results.
