Yes, I did this. In fact, I’ll be doing this again today. Because in all of the marriage hub-ub the one thing, the one appliance we -didn’t- get…was a mixer. Now most women would go pretty crazy about this. I can hear them now: “you made cookies with no mixer?!? Either you have arms of steel or your hands must have gotten filthy!!” Very much the later, ladies, very much the later.
♪I am a sovereign Prince of Egypt…♪ (I’ve had that song stuck in my head for like three days.)
So back to cookies. You would think that mixing cookies with your hands is a royal pain…but it’s not! it’s really fun!!! It’s like you’re a kid again playing with the properties of silly putty, play dough, or flour with water. Except you can eat it!! It’s just wonderful. I would recommend that everyone tries it once. Just once. If you prefer your mixer and your perfectly blended cookies, okay. But just once? For me? It’s such fun. Especially, I would imagine, if you have kids. You’ll have to watch them with the egg, but otherwise, what a great family activity: getting messy and making cookies all in one! It’s like a kid’s dream. Perhaps that’s why I love it. . .
Also recommended for all women: a good husband. But that should be up later this evening. 😉
