I'd love to celebrate the unofficial end of summer in a summery way, but man, these temperatures are making me want to get out my fall decorations and bake something!
Not this year! hahah
What's your method for baking cookies ahead of time?
Mix, roll, freeze, bake as needed
Mix, roll, bake, freeze
Mix, roll, bake, store in containers
(Can you not create polls anymore?)
Me: It calls for 3/4 tsp but we're halving it so, like, a little more than a third. Use the closest measuring spoon and do your best.
Son: Why would I not just do 1/8 3 times?
Him: Here, just let me do it.
Hahaha What a role reversal. I do better with decimals!
I took [what I thought was] pumpkin puree out of the freezer, only to find it was refried beans when it started to thaw 😬
That's what I get for trying to make pumpkin bread when it's still SUMMER 🤣

We are Christmas.

It's awesome when you're mixing red velvet cookies and you realize that your kids used all but 2 drops of your red food coloring making slime this summer. Guess we'll have pink velvet cookies this Christmas.

I think my oven has some sort of turbo pre-heat. It's not listed as a feature or in any of the supporting materials, but if you put something in before it's 100% up to temp, or increase the temperature mid-bake, it instantly burns the bottom.
Suggestions? (other than just not to do those things! ;) )
I make cookies pretty regularly (in the winter, at least). Most often, they are great. Of course today, when I am making them for something specific AND TOOK THE TIME TO SEPARATE M&Ms INTO TEAM COLORS, they are a huge faily mess.
