Last Friday(Nov. 27) I received an email about my sugar cookies. A local construction contractor was having a corporate Christmas party and wanted to order 12 dozen cookies!!! I was very excited, because up until now, I had baked and decorated sugar cookies for sheer enjoyment:) Making money doing something you find pleasure in is the name of the game! The woman in charge of planning the party picked the variety pictured above...12 dozen of them! They wanted to put one cookie at each place setting:) I was a bit nervous, but mostly excited!
I had never made the snowflake before, but it ended up as my favorite due to its simplicity and the sparkle of the sugar:) (I tried to capture the sparkle with the camera, but didn't do a good job of it.)
Whew, I did it! It was very satisfying to have them all completed, packaged up, and tied with a pretty ribbon.
Mission accomplished! All 12 dozen "dressed up" and ready to party:)
Each of these cookies is large, at least 5 inches:) Just the way I like 'em!
Happy Baking! :)
P.S. A happy ending... Thankfully, the customer was very happy with the cookies:)
