Holiday baking marathon 2003 :)

I started on my holiday baking today; I had to stop because I ran out of flour and the new bag got left in Dan's car, but at least I've begun.

So far, I've got:

5 1/2 dozen sugar cookies
12 dozen butterscotch-oatmeal cookies

It's a start.

I hate you :)
I have *nothing* don't yet. I did go and buy 8 lbs. of chocolate disks to mold, and hopefully I will get to that tomorrow. My daughter has promised to bake cookies now that college is out until next year.

What sugar cookie recipe do you use?

Re: I hate you :)
Well, I've apparently lost the recipe card in the kitchen at the moment :) but it's an old recipe of my grandmother's--it's easy, you don't even have to roll it out, you drop the dough in spoonfuls on the cookie sheet and then flatten them with (seriously) the bottom of a glass with a wet cloth over it! It works great, but is such an amusing thing to be doing to cookies--my four-year-old thought it was very odd! I think I'm going to have to make another batch--it's supposed to have nutmeg but I was out, and while they are still good there's definitely something missing.

(I love those old-time baking tips--she had a cake recipe where you were supposed to line the pan with greased brown paper :); I've made it, used waxed paper instead.)
