Okay, I have struggled my whole life to figure out how to make sugar cookies and cut them out and then transfer them to the cookie sheet with out mangling them. I guess some people are born with this skill, but I was not. Here is the brilliant tip I found in one of my cookbooks yesterday:
1. Turn your cookie sheet upside down. (This is promising already, huh?)
2. Roll out the cookie dough directly on the cookie sheet, which is now upside down. Try to cover the whole bottom of the sheet with dough (so as to create as many delicious cookies at once.) I am all about efficiency here.
3. Use your favorite cookie cutter to cut out as many cookies as possible.
4. Peel away the between parts and you are ready to put your tray in the oven, with no handling of the actual cookies at all!
I tried this out and it worked beautifully.
Speaking of delicious treats, a new blog that I am really loving is
Check out her section of chocolate blogs. It is delicious enough to satisfy those forbidden cravings I was having.
