|The first snow of the year. The Sunday before the Sunday before last.|
|My measuring cup and only bowl of decent size.|
|my teaspoon (i.e. a small spoon)|
|my tablespoon (i.e. a normal spoon)|
|my cookie sheet (i.e. a pizza pan)|
I also made my own sprinkles because the grocery store only had one color and they were hideous and expensive:
|A few drops of food coloring in sugar.|
|Mix and allow to dry over radiator|
A mini-disaster struck however with the snickerdoodles. After they had been in the oven for maybe 4 minutes a burning smell began emerging from the oven. I opened the oven to discover that the cookie dough had dripped through the holes in the pan and burnt on the bottom of the oven. I had to take them out and put foil underneath. But by that time it was too late and there was smoke billowing out of the oven for the rest of my cooking. And then even the second batch turned out flat and crunchy. Not bad, but not right.
Nonetheless, it was fun and the cookies turned out on the whole well.
