I read this article about listening to Christmas music too early and anxiety, but I decided that I just don't care. Dorothy and I are both ready to usher in the holiday season.
Still, it feels too early for Christmas cookies, so I encouraged her to go through the cookie cutters and find all of the fall shapes yesterday.
Then, right before bath time, I made a half-batch of this delicious dough that doesn't need to chill. And actually? I might use it for my real Christmas cookies because I think it's as good as the excellent dough I usually make. Maybe better, even, because of the hint of almond extract.
Dorothy is super serious about her cookie-rolling, as you can see.
But that was before I gave them my only two remaining bottles of colored sugar.
