What fun we had yesterday.
About two weeks ago, I received an invitation from my daughter. She is so creative. The invitation was in red and white and so darn cute. It gave us a few “rules”.
|1. Bring 3 dozen cookies|
2. Send her the recipe via email and everyone will get a copy
3. She will provide separate containers for the cookies. (She found small bakery boxes at the restaurant supply store.)
4. Come & enjoy!
I made the cookie dough on Friday and got up the day of the party and made the cookies. Sugar Cookies. I have been making them for years. I got the recipe from a friend in my Bridge Club. The recipe actually calls for white sugar on the top, but during the holidays, I always use red & green.
|1 cup powdered sugar|
|1 cup sugar|
|1 cup oil|
|2 sticks butter|
|4 1/2 cups flour|
|1 teaspoon salt|
|1 teaspoon baking powder|
|1 teaspoon cream of tarter|
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine sugars, oil and butter. Mix well. Add the eggs. Slowly add the flour, salt, cream of tarter and baking powder. With a cookie scoop, drop balls of dough onto parchment paper. Dip a flat glass into sugar and press down on cookie dough. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees
But, the party.
So, my sister and I took off to Charlotte. We even shopped on the way down there and this was at 9:00 in the morning. We also shopped on our way home.
When we arrived, everything was just beautiful. My daughter is an interior designer and her house was just perfect. She used a gold and silver theme. The tree was filled with beautiful ornaments and it just sparkled!
She kept the group small. Which was just fun. We had a choice of spiced tea and coffee. Brunch was delicious.
