Do you make cookies?

Atlanta maid house cleaning serviceToo bad I found  this amazing  tip AFTER I  had finished my marathon Christmas baking sessions!   I think it is brilliant and cant wait to try it out when I make Valentine  cookies.

Instead of wrestling with  wax or parchment paper, or taping it down, to roll the cookie dough out on –  all you have to do is just sprinkle the work surface with a bit of water and the paper magically adheres!   Then, use another sheet of paper over the dough to keep it from sticking to the rolling pin!

Oh and if this inspires you to make some cookies, here is my grandmother’s recipe for tea cakes (as she called them).  Or you could just say sugar cookies:

2 cups (slightly less) of  self rising four

1 stick of unsalted butter softened

1 cup sugar

1 large egg

1 Tab. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all ingredients into stiff dough.  Refrigerate for about 15 minutes and then roll out onto a surface 1/8 inch thick.   Sprinkle with colored sugars if you like.  Bake 6-8 minutes.

Then after you have made a mess of your kitchen call Sponge & Sparkle to shine it up again!!
