I love to bake. If you were to ask me to cook dinner, Iíd probably scrounge for a frozen pizza, but throw some flour and sugar on the table and ask for cookies? Iím your girl! Baking is fun by yourself, and itís even more fun when you get a group of friends together to help. Here is one of my favorite baking games.

Spelling Cookies

We all like cookies (or we all should like cookies) and whatís better than a regular cookie? A personalized one! If you have a friend that needs cheering up or a birthday present, make her personalized cookies. All youíll need are cookie cutters, sugar cookie dough, and decorations.

1. Dig around your house or ask your parents for any cookie cutters you have. What you are looking for are the letter cutters shaped like uppercase ABCs. If your family doesnít have any of these cookie cutters, you can buy a collection of cutters for less than $10 or you can be creative and use a butter knife to cut out the letters.

2. Spread flour over a countertop or over parchment paper if youíd like to tray and contain the mess. When you have a nice coat of flour to make a nonstick surface, pull out a roll of ready to bake sugar cookies. Open the roll and break off about a third of the dough.
3. Squash the cookie dough in your clean hands to soften it up a bit and then put it on your floured surface.
4. Grab a rolling pin or long can and start rolling out the dough until it is about ľ of an inch thick. You might need to sprinkle some more flour on top of the dough to keep it from sticking.
5. Take your cookie cutters and spell out a message to your friend in the dough. Youíll likely be able to only write four or five letters at a time, and thatís normal. You just add more dough as you need to until you have all the letters you need.
6. After you cut out the letters, carefully remove the dough from around the letters Ė not the letters themselves.
7. Then, take a spatula and carefully scoop up the letters being trying hard to not distort them.
8. Place the letters on the waiting cookie sheets.
9. When you have all of your letters cut and placed on the cookie sheet, decorate them however you like. Iím a big fan of candy pieces and chocolate chips for emphasis, but if sprinkles are more your style, go for it.
10. Bake the cookies according to the instructions on the package, but set the timer a few minutes less. The flour and thickness of the cookies might make them cook a bit faster than the recipe calls for.
11. When the cookies are a golden color, take then out of the oven and place the whole pan away from the heat to let the cookies cool a bit.
12. After a few minutes, remove the cookies from the pan again being very careful not to break any of your letters.
13. Grab a container of icing while the cookies are cooling and decorate a piece of cardboard with wrapping paper.
14. When the cookies are cool, use the icing as glue and stick your finished cookies to the decorated cardboard carefully spelling out your message.
15. You can even put a bit of icing on the cookies if youíd like for extra flavor.
16. When the icing has had time to set and harden just a bit, very carefully deliver your cookie message to your friend and then sit down to have one or five cookies with her.

I make pretty much everything. Candies, fudge, cookies, pies, cakes... everything. I like to make a batch of cupcakes, and make each one different, or hide a quarter in one and see who finds it.

I love cooking, not just sweets, I can also do REALLY good dinners... (Or so I've been told!) Cookies are WAY fun to make! And even more fun to decorate, and yet MORE fun to EAT!

I don't really care for cooking or baking, but I'd love to make a cake-sized cookie. That would be fun.
