I got a babysitter a few nights ago. I just put my coat on and walked out the door. I wasn't carrying 900 bags "just in case." I didn't have to buckle 3 children, myself, and then the baby again because she's mysteriously figured out how to unbuckle herself. I talked to actual people. I ate cheese that I didn't know how to pronounce and no one wiped their fingers on my shirt. It was like living a whole other life.
Except that I'm actually not that good at talking to real people. I get my words all mixed up and I end up saying things like, "Of course I can make you cookies for your Christmas party. It's no big deal! I'll just squeeze you in." Apparently this alternate life I'm leading doesn't involve laundry because Other-Me clearly has all the time in the world for just squeezing people in.
Although...to be fair...if I made more cookies like these... I would have a lot more time on my hands too! Not only are they super quick to make... I got to use my cousin Pam's card as inspiration! That's right! It's the second Thursday of the month... the day where I snag a design from my cousin's paper crafting blog to use as inspiration for some cookies and she grabs a cookie design to inspire her paper crafting!
1. Outline and fill the entire candy cane cookie with medium consistency red icing. Let it dry overnight.
2. Pipe a white outline with medium consistency white icing and a #2.5 tip.
3. Immediately fill in white stripes.
4. Just kidding. There are only 3 steps. This cookie couldn't be easier!!
