My Wife decided today is the day to break in her birthday gift. I bought her the gift LAST JUNE which has sat idle since then. This fact has nagged at me for the better part of 6 months.

She had been talking about this particular gift for as long as I can remember. Then to see it sit idle for so long after what I spent on it was really irritating.

Anyway, back to the title of this entry, Cookies. She has made cookies since she woke up today. Since 4.30am the house has smelled of cookies, the counter tops have been throughly floured, almost every bowl we have is either in the dishwasher or in the sink, every flat surface in the three ajoining rooms are covered with cooling cookies.

The gift was a Kitchen Aide Mixer.

Here is what i have been doing while she bakes, hope you like it. (yes she was the inspiration)

*sung to the tune of the 12 days*

12 bags of flour
11 pounds of sugar
10 vanilla beans
9 dozen eggs
(is this a hint?)
8 pounds of walnuts
7 cookie sheets
6 mixing bowls
5 pounds of chocolate
(did Santa make this list?)
4 rolls of parchment
3 cookie cookbooks
2 oven timers
and a new kitchenaid mixer
(ok ok I got it)

    I love cookies- mom made tons yesterday, too. It smelled so good. The kids were havig a blast last night, running around with gooey chocolate chip cookies. My top pick has got to bhe the Amish Christmas cookies, because they bring back special memories from my days when I was Amish.
