I’m not quite sure how this happened, but I just made a batch of the worst-looking shape cookies ever. (See below for proof.) The shapes kept kept crumpling into featureless blobs when I tried to get them on the cookie sheet to bake them, even after I chilled them in the refrigerator. They tasted good, though, in keeping with the “tastes great, looks like slop” theme of my cooking. One of these days I’m going to achieve a better-looking presentation, and then watch out!
In other Christmas news, my daughters are planning to watch the worst holiday TV double-feature ever tonight: an episode of “The Vampire Diaries,” followed by the Christmas episode of “My Little Pony.” Bonus points for guessing which girl wanted to watch which show.
