I spent much of Tuesday afternoon cutting snowflakes with kindergarteners. Some of those pudgy-faced babes had never snipped themselves a lacy papered jewel before.
What is this world coming to?
I fully intend to teach my children the ways of paperflaking.
Perhaps we’ll string them along the boughs of our home today.
After all, in a room full of confettied cuttings,
isn’t it possible to believe in magical things?
Snow White Ginger Chews
Delicate and spicy. Pretty as a picture. These easy bake cookies are great for Christmas potlucks and the like. An beautiful addition to any party fare.
4 egg whites
1 c. sugar
½ c. butter
½ t. cream of tartar
½ t. baking soda
1 T. ginger
1 ¼ c. flour
Cream egg, sugar and butter until extremely fluffy. Add remaining ingredients & beat until a soft dough is formed. Roll by the tablespoon into balls, then roll into sparkling sugar. Bake 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes, just until cookie is cooked through but not browned.
And speaking of magic…
how did these two WONDER TWINS
escape my plan to never allow my children to grow up?
Looks like I’ll have to invest in a locked, enchanted tower after all.
