Christmas is the perfect reason to throw on my chique apron and get busy in the kitchen. Thursday was the last day of school (before breaking for Christmas) and I made sugar cookies for our little lunch hour suare’. I was a little nervous to bring them, because the night before when I decided (at the last minute) to bake, I realized I had no milk or eggs on deck. But I was set on baking, so I used a recipe that called for no eggs and no milk. Can you believe that?
I’m adventurous – I gave it go. The cookies came out beautiful and actually tasted great to me and my taste tasters, but the real test was going to be when I served them at the suare.’
I barely made it to second block before I was approached for one of the cookies. I happily shared with the nosey classmate who was eyeing my cookie bag. After eating it, she said nothing and I thought, ‘the good news is, she didn’t choke or frown‘ though before I could continue my thought she tapped me on my back and asked for another. Yes! She likes them.
By the time lunch came around, I was about a half of dozen cookies short of the 4 dozen I initially had in tow and the ladies at the lunch table were certainly ready to weigh in. I placed the cookie boxes on the table and they went at it. The first few bites were a nervous wait for me, but by the second and third bite, the ladies began to yield me, (one by one), the sweetest compliments. A few of the ladies actually did not believe that I had made them – they were certain they were purchased at an established bakery shop. Woo hoo!!! What a compliment! I assured them I made them myself, and with no milk or eggs.
Oh, please believe, I danced in sweet victory the remainder of the day because I tried something new and conquered it easy. The holidays are just getting started and what a sweet begin it is. I can’t wait to try the recipe out on my family over the Christmas break. I’m psyched and #Sweetly so.
Happy Holidays to you and yours, be sure to eat a cookie or two,
I’m The Cupcake Chique
Trying something unique and passing it on to you.
PS. I forgot to mention that the ladies and I agree the cookies taste a lot like shortbread cookies in texture. Still, they were FABULOUS!
