Making the sugar cookies for tomorrow. Sorry, NYE people, but I think this is going to be a better batch.

However, I promise there shall be no angry vagina^H^H^HEye of Sauron this time, so y'all still win.

Side note: when you store your flour in the freezer[1], and you start to sift the flour? Wow, waves of cold really do come out of it. It's both cool^H^H^Hawesome and, well, cold.

[1]As I do, to stop it from going bad if I don't use it often.

As the NYE cookies were quite lovely, I do not feel in any way deprived. :)

Probably not, since I only made ice cream cones, moons, sheep, and dubious train signals.

But I'm sure if I tell Venka what you said, she can whip something out for you!

you know, I think I said it at the party, but icing those things was a really great Friday activity. Kudos.

I think you did, but thank you again!

It will most likely happen again next year.

Mmm... I'm still hoping I'll feel better so I can come to your party. I may have to choose the dinner or the party later - if my head is up to doing something in a peopled arena.

BTW - Thanks again for sharing your cookie lore. I bought the cookbook you recommended, which has the sugar cookie recipe that you use. OMG - the cookies had their own following for Christmas. Also, had some leftover dough that had been rolled out far too many times so I filled them with jam. Big hit. Folks thought they were weirdly shaped Hamantaschen.

Believe me, I understand. You do what you've gotta do. I'm not sure which place will be less echoy; Torito's will definitely have some kind of din, but there's going to be enough people at our place afterwards that I can't guarantee ours will be any quieter. Just more of a concentration of awesome people. *g*

And you're quite welcome! I'm glad it's worked out so well for you. We were thinking of coming over for Yule (slothman mentioned it), but I couldn't deal with groups that weekend. We mostly hibernated. But now I wish I'd gotten there to try your version.

So, does this mean I need to worry that people will start thinking that I'm stealing your cookie recipe? *grin*

LOL - nope - I told them the story of how I got it.
