I am a cookie enthusiast. I have only been baking sugar cookies for the last three years. During my twins senior year I decided to attempt sugar cookie design and it was a total flop. I have been baking ever since my big flop, teaching myself from u-tube and reading everything I can get my hands on. I guess you could say it has become a cookie obsession. I literally live in No-Man's-Land and resources are nil, so I to glean as much information about cooking from books, internet, and Pinterest. I would love to attend some classes on cookieing. I love to bake because if you are always celebrating, you do not have time to be sad! I had four children and lost one at the age of 11 and two years later lost another at the age of 15. Through cookieing, I get to celebrate the birthdays, baby showers, graduations, and wedding showers that I missed out on. Like I said, "If you are always celebrating the here and now, what you can wrap your arms around today, you do not have time to be sad!". Cookieing has brought me a lot of joy and healing!
