My little sister is getting married this Saturday‚Ä¶yikes! This week to prepare for the big event, we have flown the queen of baking‚Ä¶my incredible Auntie Roz (and her darling assistant daughter, Tricia) down to Texas to oversee ‚Äúoperation wedding cookies!‚Äù. I grew up on these cookies‚Ä¶my Nonnie (that‚Äôs Italian for grandma) would send care packages to Texas filled with these treats‚Ä¶and the pink wedding cookies are our favorites.
‚Ä¶and my baby!
‚Ä¶‚Äôhello beautiful!‚Äô Its been a present bought a year ago that has been patiently waiting for my return back to Texas‚Ä¶isn‚Äôt it gorgeous (I have already baked three loaves of bread using this beast)
Auntie Roz inspected our dough‚Ä¶teaching us the ‚Äòfeel‚Äô of the dough. Because no recipe works right every time‚Ä¶you have to know the right texture,‚Ä¶if its soft or sticky, hard or pliable‚Ä¶.and how to adjust it.
Now time to roll the dough into balls‚Ä¶
Mandy Jo‚Äôs got it now‚Ä¶
In the oven they go!
and time to roll some more
We made 28 dozen of these bad boys.
And then we moved on to chocolate cookies
Momma is trying to keep count as we were frosting.
And then the almond crescents
and even mints‚Ä¶
After several hours of unsuccessful begging‚Ä¶Hank finally gave up.
But that was one happy bride to be!
I am looking forward to Saturday!
