Butter, Sugar, Flour

Jim and I baked about 6 dozen sugar cookies tonight in the shapes of gingerbread men, candy canes, mittens, and cardinals.

Before we baked those out of dough Jim made on Thursday, we made dough for Mexican Wedding Cookies (or Russian tea cakes or Greek Wedding Cookies, whatever you choose to call them). After the sugar cookies were done, we made 6 dozen wedding cookies. It's easy, you make little balls, bake them, dredge them in powdered sugar, cool them, then re-dredge. Yummo.

Then we baked four trays of shortbread. Then T and I had to come home and take the dogs out on their late evening walk. I am tired as can be. Baking with a friend is fun, but it's been a long week and I'm plumb wore out!
