Lessons I Learned While Baking Cookies

Today Mom and I had a cookie baking extravaganza and I learned a few valueable lessons.

1. I'm not much of a cookie baker.

2. I suppose I should bake cookies more than once a year.

3. Read, REALLY READ, not just skim, the directions before you start assembling the ingredients for your cookies.

4. Don't eat unsweetened chocolate by itself. It will taste like chalk in your mouth.

5. A bowl gets really hot when it has been in the microwave for 4 minutes.

6. When all of your table and counter space get filled with cookies and bowls, the floor will do nicely for your other supplies.

7. Kitchen-Aid mixers are awesome!

8. Sometimes the sloppiest, ugliest cookies are the best tasting cookies.

9. A hot cookie sheet can burn through an oven glove.

10. There is nothing better than the smell of cookies baking in the oven.

11. Except getting to eat those cookies.

    That is the best list! dont eat the unsweetend chocolate! I learned that the hard way!
    Thanks for the comments, I unfortunatly have known too many (close to 10) people who were my age or near it that were killed by drunk drivers. You will be in my thoughts over the holidays.
