A couple of weeks ago Brynne and I made and decorated some sugar cookies. They were prepared cookies that you sliced and baked. They turned into nice sized cookies and were so yummy and they were only $1.99 for 24 cookies at Aldi.
So, I volunteered to purchase the cookie dough for both Brynne and Eli's classes for them to decorate cookies at their Christmas parties that are tomorrow. I'd only be out $8.00 for 8 dozen cookies. I'd bake them myself. No problem!
Except that when I got to Aldi yesterday, there were no cookies.
So, I purchased break and bake Pillsbury sugar cookies from Walmart at $2.50 each. I was only out $10.00. No problem!
Except that when I baked the first batch this morning, they were tiny and wouldn't bake right so they were burning and falling apart.
So, I did what any desperate mom on the fly would do ... I called the Reasor's bakery and ordered 8 dozen 3" sugar cookies. But, there was a problem!
My $8.00 had turned into $32.00. Yikes!
But, what do you do? You just do it.
Next year I think I'll just volunteer to bring the icing.
