Snicker-doodle Memories

21 06 2007


I knew something was wrong when the oven started to smoke. The cookies had only been in for seven minutes, so how could they be burning?

My daughter wanted to do something special for Father’s Day, so I requested she make my favorite home-made cookies: Snicker-doodles. 

Everything was going well, we thought, as she slipped the first batch of cookies into the preheated oven. Seven minutes later she opened the smoking oven to find that the 12 separate cookies had somehow transformed into one overflowing mass (see picture). It was like an old “I Love Lucy” episode. Too funny for words! 

Have you ever noticed that it’s the unexpected events in life that are most memorable? It’s true.  

Thanks Kim for one of the best Father’s Day gifts ever. Love Dad.
