Cookie Trouble

I've been doing a little work on my Christmas goodies. On Saturday evening I made two batches of toffee and this morning I baked Pfeffernusse Cookies. They are a spicy little molasses cookie that is rolled in powdered sugar, one of Mom's favorites. I've learned that I can save time and sugar by tossing the slightly warm treats and sugar inside a ziplock bag. I used a gallon size bag and added each sheetful as they cooled. I was just able to fit all the cookies inside the bag. As I rolled the bag about in my hands, checking to see they were all coated, the bag popped open and the cookies tumbled out. I let out a scream and heaved myself toward the counter.

All of the cookies had been saved, but the tummy of my dark, blue turtleneck sweater was graced with an ample amount of powdery sweetness. "And I just finished all the laundry," I remarked to Hannah.


She laughed. "You should have been wearing your apron," she told me. Ha ha! She was right.

  1. HaHaHa...Oh Martha...what a cute slice of life...You look just adorable in your powdered sugared turtleneck...

    I'm laughing as this happened to me when I was flour coating chicken to fry...They look delicious, and if any had fallen on the floor, I would have had to eat those....

    Thanks for the chuckle, and glad you were able to save the cookies.

    1. The only thing on the floor was a sprinkling of sugar. I was relieved. :)

    1. That sounds almost like a Dr. Seuss book. :) I wonder if Pat Hatt could come up with a rhyme for that one!
