I feel silly when I need a detailed description of what to expect for the cookie decorating celebration at school on Halloween.
I mean...there's a HUGE difference between a frosted sugar cookie decorated like a spider with licorice legs and Red Hots for eyes...and...a sugar cookie decorated with licorice legs and Red Hots using frosting dabs as "glue".
I'm not crazy, right? There's a difference?
She'll need her own little thing of frosting...if everyone has a regular cookie, and they're dipping their knives in the frosting, then the whole container will be contaminated. What color would you guess? I'm thinking chocolate for spider-effect.
I found some gluten free licorice. Let's pray it can be delivered in time. (Did you know that all licorice-ish stuff contains wheat? I know. Crazy.)
But BEFORE the spider cookies on Halloween, next week is pumpkin week.
We'll need some gluten free pumpkin pie and a gluten free pumpkin cookie.
How 'bout them carbs?
This is why I've got a fresh batch of gluten-free sugar cookie dough in the freezer...
Ready, Set, Go.
Let the games begin.
