Iced Shortbread Thumbprints.... and other stuff.

....Sounds so fancy schmancy and technical, doesn't it? Well, it's not. These are by far the EASIEST cookies i have ever made! I don't know where they've been all my life!!!!!!!!

Okay, so i started typing this and then noticed it was getting very quiet in the kitching where chloe was playing at the counter in her cooking stand thingy we made her. I went to take a looksie and she had somehow reached the far end of the counter and plucked off 2 cookies, which she licked all the jam out of, and gotten the whole bag of apples off the counter and started knawing her way through one. or is that nawing? my spell checks not going off on either word. whatever. haha.

Here's chloe mushing the first one around in her hands once she licked all the jam out.

And the handy little christmas decorated paper plate full, BEFORE she snatched the lower left two off of it!!!!!!!!!! :)

So anyways, mommy helped chloe presss her tiny little thumb into each and every one of these!! I so wish i could have gotten pictures of that, but being the photographer and head chef doesn't work out so well. But man are they delicious with the freezer jam we made last week!!!

Go on over to short stop's christmas cookie number 5 blog to see the recipe!

On another note... combatting Jeremy's eternal begging to know the identity of his christmas presents is... challenging. But i got a new idea! All his questions, I answer with a question!

"Is this one a shirt?"
"Do you think it's a shirt, honey?"

"Why won't you tell me what you got me?!"
"Well, why would i want to tell you your presents, sweetheart?"

"Here chloe, open daddy's present"
"Daddy, do you want a spanking?????"

And i say it all in this sickeningly sweet voice that drives him nuts and gets him off my back, he caught on very quick that the whole "knowing all your presents before you get them" tradition is going OUT THE DOOR!
