I'm a terrible mother. I left my precious children unsupervised on Christmas Day while I went to take a nap; forgetting all about the gun I left out unlocked and unsecured on the kitchen counter.
I awoke to piercing screams and went rushing into the kitchen to find this most disturbing sight.....
my kids had gone all Cookie Thug on me and baked up a batch of buttery Christmas tree-shaped Spritz delights completely on their own and were jumping around whooping it up with excitement as the first tray came out of the oven.
Now they think they iz some kind of bad ash bakers breakin it down all independent Infidel style without their momma around. My son said biker gangs are for wusses and he wants to join a hard-core Baker Gang instead. I'm thinking we could film a modern update to the classic film, 'Easy Rider' and call it Easy Baker. My son volunteered to do all his own Easy Bake Oven stunts too without even the safety of an oven mitt. His street name is Pillsbury, for obvious reasons.
When I trotted out my rolling pin and dough for traditional cookie-cutter treats, my newly cookie gun-licensed mini-Infidels were all like, "We see you rollin, we hatin." I bet cookie dough conflict was the true inspiration behind Chamillionaire's big hit song.
So now my kids can wipe their own behinds and make the cookies for our Christmas family get-together. My work as a mother is pretty much done here. Yeah, having kids shooting up the place might bother some people, but I don't really mind at all.
You won't usually find cutesy advice on decorating or fashion or mommying-to-the-multitudes tips here but I do have to share this Spritz cookie recipe with you. It made the best cookie gun cookies I've ever tasted. Ever. Butter Snow Flakes.
