I took a writing break to prep the dough for my Mixed Berry Jam Thumbprint Cookies.
I am going to my first-ever Christmas cookie exchange party today and will be bringing 4 dozen jam cookies! I am so excited (and am mentally preparing myself to be in a sugar coma tonight). My cookies are very simple: use this dough and add thumbprints of jam (Iâ€™m using a yummy mixed berry jam).
Lots of raw dough was consumed during the prep process:
Please donâ€™t bother to yell at me for eating raw cookie dough. If raw dough is wrong, I really donâ€™t want to be right. There are certain things worth taking calculated risks for in life, and I firmly believe raw cookie dough is one of them.
Things that I do not think are worth taking risks for:
- Not having health insurance if you can afford it (I pay through the nose for my own)
- Bungee jumping (I backed out at the top from a bungee jump in 2001 in Prague)
- Blindly choosing a salon to wax your eyebrows (once a random place waxed off half my left brow)
- Not washing your hands after using the bathroom (OK, thatâ€™s more of a gross-out factor)
I will, however, risk going to an out-of-state college specifically for a boy (that didnâ€™t work out), get a tattoo that I someday might regret (itâ€™s on my hip), and eat raw cookie dough. Life is short.
Easy leftovers for lunch:
I had leftover Napa cabbage, pecan, feta, carrots, onions, and apple salad and added some edamame for bulk + protein.
What are you willing to take risks for? What are you NOT willing to risk?
