Butter got everywhere!

Paula Deen would be proud.

So I decided to make cookies for a cute charity fundraiser bake sale, dubbed “Iron Chef America,” using a recipe I used a few years ago to make Swiss Spitzbuben. (The first time my mom made them for me was when I was in elementary school. I thought the name was absolutely hilarious. Now, I just appreciate how they’re 90% butter)

In everyday life I’m a klutz, but I do pride myself on being able to maneuver pretty smoothly in the kitchen. Wrong!

It all started out fine- warming up sticks of butter, and mixing them with confectioners sugar, salt, a pinch of vanilla, and eventually adding in flour. Now, I’m not terribly confident with a mixer, but I never expected it to fall off the counter, sending butter everywhere after turning it off to go grab some more ingredients. Needless to say, I had a swell time cleaning it all up, wiping the floor and cabinets, and cleaning the mixer for more use.

The batter turned out okay, thankfully, and it now chilling out in the fridge before I butcher it, cutting out shapes. After that, I’ll bake them and add fruit preserves in the middle. Yum!

Now that I mention it, I do believe I see an unopened jar of Paula Deen preserves watching me from the pantry……

Hair growth progress- As of June 2015- I regularly trim my own bangs and they look amazing- choppy and short. The split ends have ruined lives and murdered small children. I haven't had a proper salon cut since July 2013. I might get a trim of 4ish inches by the end of the summer? I'm lazy.
