Halloween Cookie Party

Okay, the whole blogging while baking thing... not possible when cooking with two-year-olds. It was so fun though! Here's the lowdown on how everything went.

After our morning shopping trip, my sister, Nora, Jack and I arrived home around 9:45 AM. It took us forever to find a pumpkin cookie cutter (yes, I realize I shouldn't have waited to get this until the morning of the big bake-off), but we got lucky and ended up finding a set of 101 cookie cutters at Kohl's. (If you ever need a cookie cutter in the shape of a cowboy boot, I'm your girl.)


With 15 minutes to prepare for our guests, Nora and I got the kitchen ready:

I got the apron she's wearing at Williams-Sonoma.
It's not available on their website anymore, but you can still get it in the stores.


When everyone arrived, they all took turns adding the ingredients...


And then mixing...

(Nora and I wore matching aprons)

And then rolling...





When the dough was flattened out, they pressed the cookie cutters into the dough...



I'm having problems uploading images to Blogger right now. I will finish when they fix it!
