Without including a face you can't accurately represent my frazzled demeanor when I attempt to bake cookies.
When I was a kid my mom had a cookbook all about how to make creative cakes with nothing but a round cake pan, a bundt pan and a square pan. She made caterpillars and castles and Snoopy and all sorts of amazing creations but I don't think I ever saw a donut. It's so simple it just slipped under the radar.
Red and white do make a fantastic combo, don't they? And snowflakes are so satisfying in their symmetry and fragility. Basically, winter is magic, and the buttery, spicy delicious treats we get to indulge in without any guilt make the holidays rich. Bring on the cookies, I'm ready!
