The dairy farmers in America are dancing a little jig today.
I was not paying enough attention to the ingredients when I first started to mix the sugar cookie dough. Instead of just doubling the recipe, using four sticks of butter, I quadrupled it with eight sticks of butter.
That’s two POUNDS. Two whole BOXES, if you prefer a visual representation of the level of the mistake.
That makes a lot of cookies, much more than my family needed for their traditional, special Mom-made Valentine’s Day gift.
Why not give them away? Acting on my reminder from yesterday, I packed up several plates full of heart-shaped sweetness and set off. At each stop, I chatted for a few minutes, catching up with neighbors and friends.
Cookie connections: my silver lining for today.
