It was so nice to just pull out the chilled dough that I had made yesterday and let the children go to work. Usually we would mix up a batch and then it would have to be refrigerated and everyone would be anxiously waiting to begin but today it was instant fun.
We ended up with nearly 5 dozen cookies in all shapes and sizes. Some we ate, some are in the cookie tin and quite a few are in the freezer *grin*. We have visitors tomorrow so Wednesday looks like it will be the perfect day for phase two... icing! That always makes for some interesting messes *grin*.
