Mom's Cookie Tester

Mom baked Christmas cookies this morning and she asked me for my help in the kitchen. Sure mom, I'll help you out all I can in that department! No problem! I'm available!
I always sit right beside mom when she cooking and baking. You just never know when she'll need me to clean up some mess on the floor as she moves from the stove to the frig to the sink. Gotta stay close by so that she has to step over me! hehehehe
The first batch of cookies mom calls Spritz. They have lots of butter and sugar and yummy stuff in them. Mom's mixing away and the batter is flying out of the mixer bowl and I'm hard at work cleaning up mom's mess. I always get to lick the beaters when the batter has been mixed.

Boy, mom was sure generous with the amount of batter she left on these beaters! I'm working hard to get every single drop!

Turn it once more mom. There's a nice big glob on the other side. I'm gettin' it all now! When I'm all done you won't need to wash them!

Time for the cookies to go into the oven. Now it's my job to watch that they don't burn. Can you see the red and green sugars on them? They look so yummy!

Hey mom - the timer just went "ding"! Time to take them out so I can start to drool!

ummmmmmmmm boy! They look pretty tasty! (Mom is butting in - sorry the color is so bad on the hand and the cookie. I was concentrating on Maggie) How soon can I give one the taste test? About 10 minutes has gone by and mom says I can have one! yeaaaaaaaaaa but then she tells me I need to say pretty please with sugar on it! WHAT???!!! Well, okay - anything for a cookie!

While I'm munching on my cookie, the mailman is leaving another Christmas card for me and mom. This card is from Jeri and Bentley. Jeri is the Queen bee for the Airedale Quilting bee that mom sews for. Jeri's job is to keep everyone on schedule so that the quilt gets done on time. Bentley is her handsome, and I mean handsome, Airedale son! Hey, it's another one of Ann Curran's cards! Ann sure does awesome work! Thank you so much Jeri and Bentley. That was so sweet of you! Merry Christmas to you both!

I've had quite a day today! Christmas is almost here! I can't wait! Until next time..........
