Taking Back My Twenties


Posted on Jun 6, 2011 | 5 comments

I spent my afternoon baking! I was in charge of dessert for an end-of-year party tomorrow night. I know I much prefer homemade dessert, so I figured everyone else would too.


I was kind of dreading coming home and dirtying up the kitchen, but as soon as I got started, I was reminded of how much I enjoy baking! Although, I do not do well around endless amounts of dough…

I mixed up the dough and then let it chill while I went to spinning. It was an hour-long class and it was really tough today…but felt good in the end.


I used a simple sugar cookie recipe from the Joy of Baking, and the end result was just how I like ‘em. Moist, thick, and nearly raw on the inside…


But they looked a little plain…


So I topped them with strawberry buttercream! This is the same buttercream I used when making Lauren’s Engagement Cake. Love this stuff!

I was a little sloppy with the bag, but I smoothed these over with a spoon after I was finished.


And of course, I sampled two. And then went back for another. Success.

I’m off to bed and I have back to back gatherings tomorrow! See ya.

    Will you bake those when you live in North Carolina (near me?)

    Frosting things is not a “skill” that I have. I figure as long as it doesn’t all melt off or blend to the point of looking brown, I’ve achieved a victory of sorts.
