Preschool Cookies

My Friend Debbie

     Last year, I volunteered to make cookies for my son's Thanksgiving Day party at preschool. I had made some cookies the previous year for the Christmas party and it seemed to go well. So, when I accepted the undertaking of making cookies for this party I thought, "No problem." Then I realized the cookies were supposed to be cut out into the shape of turkeys. I didn't have a turkey cutter so I borrowed one and bought several rolls of cookie dough in preparation for my baking adventure. The day before the party I rolled out my dough and began to cut out the turkey shapes. Unfortunately, the turkey feet did not make the cut.

     After several attempts, I decided to go ahead and bake the cookies with no feet. As the cookies baked, I realized I had bigger problems. The turkey shape had expanded into a disfigured cookie that in no way resembled a turkey. So, I thought to myself, "Icing, I need icing!" I grabbed my two boys and headed to the closest grocery store. After purchasing several varieties of icing, I rushed back home to do damage control. Unfortunately, after I spread the icing on the cookies they looked worse. So, I thought to myself, "Candy, I need candy!" So, back to the store I went. By the time I was done with the cookies, I had about an inch of icing on each cookie, half a dozen candy corns, and some mini chocolate chips. I'm sure I must have spent over $45 in cookie supplies. I took a simple task and turned it into a monumental event. For the preschool party this year, I volunteered to bring a bag of M&M's.
