I hope you all had a relaxing Sunday. Nathan and I had some Christmas shopping to wrap up (I also found one final package of reindeer!!), and then we had a family dinner to attend so it wasn't "relaxing" lol, actually more like hectic!
I can't even begin to describe how excited I was to find one last package of the reindeer decorations. I had a feeling we would be lucky to find even just one, but I have decided to try and pipe some reindeer cookies in the near future :) Of course I will do a post complete with pictures so I can share what I hope to be a success :) Speaking of cookies, I have yet another sugar cookie recipe to share with you today, and this one has an ingredient that really had me perplexed. What ingredient you ask? Cream of tartar. When I read that I didn't think it made much sense, the only tartar I know of is what people eat with english style fish and chips. Of course I had to look it up to find out what the connection was to cookies, and the cream of tartar I found out gives the cookies a creamier texture. I have never used it before so lets see if it makes a great cookie even better shall we? Oh, and I thought it would be fun to share with you guys that I actually burnt out an electric mixer lol! Apparently I pushed it past it's limits, so Nathan being the awesome boyfriend that he is went out and got me a tool grade one by Black & Decker :) He's the bestest boyfriend EVER, check it out.
