A few weeks ago, I organized a bake sale at work which benefitted a great charity, Wayside Waifs. If you haven’t heard of Wayside (you probably live under a rock. or you just aren’t from Kansas City), they are a wonderful animal rescue group. And who doesn’t love animal rescue groups.
Anyway, I decided I would also contribute to the bake sale, so I whipped up some sugar cookies with paw prints on them (cute, right?).
I know I’ve posted about my attempts at baking before, and shared the recipes before, but I’m sharing again. Because I can. I am slowly mastering the art of this baking thing…although it is still quite an ordeal. I end up spending more than a couple hours on it each time. But it’s actually pretty calming to me, and, well, the end result is delicious!
I started with this sugar cookie recipe. The dough is amazing. Not that I would eat it or anything. But it’s delicious.
From there, I just let the creative juices flow. This time it came out in the form of paw prints, just perfect for a bake sale benefitting an animal shelter.
I think this batch turned out pretty well – every last one of them sold at the bake sale, and I didn’t hear any complaints. :)
