"Second Try" Cookies


I am going to miss a cookie baking session at my friend Brenda’s this weekend. Since I have already bought the ingredients, I decided to try to make them. The first time I baked cookies was at Brenda’s house last year. I made Bailey’s cookies. They turned out uh, ok…

Today I am making the Cooking Light's “Viennese Almond Crescents”, see the recipe here and “Crisp Sugar Cookies”, see the recipe here. I got really "adventurous" and made some icing for the Crisp Sugar Cookies: 2 cups powdered sugar, 1.5 tablespoon softened butter, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, ¼ teaspoon salt, 3 to 4 tablespoons water.

I think they turned out ok given that this is the second time I am baking cookies in my life. I like the experience, it’s fun. I packed them to give as a Christmas gift.

I am re-editing this post to be part of the 12 Days of Sharing sponsored by Share our Strength hosted by “In Jennie’s Kitchen” blog.
