My wife's family makes a bunch of cookies the Saturday after Thanksgiving. We did a gross (144) of sugar cookies. While I don't make the dough or bake them, it is "all hands on deck" to frost them.
My objective is to see what I can turn the cookies shapes into with a little frosting. I make a dog out of a reindeer for example. Sounds simple, but the reindeer had antlers and were jumping, and I turned it into a sitting dog. I also turned some ornaments into my favorite collegiate team's football. A Santa cookie soon became a Grinch cookie. While that was the easiest to do, it caused the most "controversy". LOL. Then I started making Santas out of every shape, from trees, to ornaments, to stars, to sleighs (looked more like a profile of Jay Leno in a Santa hat with a beard).
My in-laws liked my creativity, my wife hated be for the rest of the day and wouldn't let me even talk about what I decorated. And yet somehow, every year, my wife tells me that I need to "help decorate the cookies".
Total cookies made that day that weren't broken or eaten were just over 750.
