Cookie time....

So I'm not the cook in the house. I grill and some other minor "stuff" but Christmas brings out the Martha Stewart in me and I make cookies. Not just cut the wrapper cookies....Real, home made, from real ingredients cookies. All of this.....



Becomes this....

That then becomes this.....

 and this....

 
I'm not saying....I'm just saying. I'll dork up the spelling but these are called Neiman Marcus cookies and there is a story behind them about a lady having a cookie at the store, she loved it and asked if there was a recipe available and they said that it would be Two fifty...thinking $2.50 she agreed but later found out that she was charged $250.00 for the recipe. She vowed revenge and spread the recipe far and wide.

Now I don't know if this is a true story but it does make a damn fine cookie. I wouldn't pay $250.00 for the recipe but it makes enough cookies that you could sell them all and make the money right back. 

Tomorrow....THE BATHROOM IS FINALLY DONE. Pics forthcoming.

Adam,The ladies don't like getting all that thick ooey gooey batter in thier finger nails and all over them. That's why we men have to help make these cookies, it's kind of like a mechanic's job.All greasy and everything! Best part is when your done you get to lick your fingers clean! P.S. Make plenty I'll be there soon!HO!HO! Ho!
