My Aunt is having her annual family cookie bake off tomorrow.... and I am finally going.
So tonight I mixed up 3 batches of dough. I call them "Party Press" because that is what the recipe from the 1970's was called. It came in a little booklet from Pillsbury. Other people call them "Spritz". I no longer have the booklet (lost that a long time ago) and the paper that I typed it on (yes typed) is a little worn....
Of course there is always an adventure with making. I forgot to check on my flour, so had to run to the store. I have more than enough wheat and rye, but was almost out of white. Then my handheld mixer was a little weak as I got 3+ cups of flour in the bowl. It overheated and stopped for a few minutes (I have not bought a nice countertop mixer). I do actually have a second handheld that I pulled out and used for the third batch. (never been used)
I believe every school building should have culinary classes for all kids at all ages. So many cross-curricular and life skills. Kids could run a soup kitchen or make food to take to homeless. I did read about 1 middle school creating a food truck to get food tho their classmates who are food insecure. What a great idea.
