Day 255: Couples’ Cookies

image
Making cookies is just plain fun. Kit and I made cookies during December for our Adventivities.

Our selections of cookies were all drop cookies so we didn’t need a huge space for rolling out and cutting dough. Maybe next year I will get more stylish.

The cookies we chose to make for our neighbors were delish and I really wish we had kept them for ourselves. Hehe, I am greedy but at least I admit it.

The red cookies pictured are Red Velvet. I used a box cake mix but added different amounts of ingredients. Less than what the box calls for, but I can’t be exact because I always add a touch more water until I get the right consistancy.

Kit and I both have the bad habit of eating while we cook or bake. Our fingers and tongues were bright red by the time we finished.

We also made gingerbread cookies that we flattened with the bottom of a glass cup and sprinkled then with sugar. They looked like they had snow on them!
The last cookie choice was a Nutella cookie. It has the simplist recipe in the world; it is all over pinterest.
Nutella Cookies!
1 cup flour
1 cup Nutella
1 egg

Blend very well, roll into balls and place on greased cookies sheet. I put a thumbprint into each of mine because I was worried the center wouldn’t cook evenly.

You may have to fiddle with the bake time. I baked mine longer than other Pinners said to.
