December 9th

Sneaky pictures are sneaky.  <3

The Girl, playing the basketballs.  Being guarded by the football player.

The cookie exchange thing at work.  I made a lot of cookies.  I got a lot of cookies.
I made Chocolate Snowdrops from Scratch.  I have a cheat recipe to make these super easy.  But they are so much better if you just make them. 

So here is how you do it:

1/2 cup butter
4 squares of unsweetened chocolate
2 cups of sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla (USE REAL VANILLA!)
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking POWDER!
1/4 teaspoon salt
Powdered Sugar

*melt the butter and the chocolate squares
*add sugar, mix well
(after the sugar, I move it to a bowl and stop mixing in the pan on the stove)
*add eggs and vanilla
* add flour, baking powder and salt
*Put all that mixed up goodness in the fridge for a few hours
*Form in into balls and roll in powdered sugar
(the easiest way to do this: put powdered sugar in a measuring cup and drop the balls in)
*Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes

And the cheat recipe:
Get a box of Devils Food Cake Mix and a tub of Cool Whip.
Mix them together.
Powder sugar them and bake.
All the cookie batter!
Half of the cookies!
