Up to my ears in cookie dough!

I got up at 5:30 am to make all the different cookie doughs I am going to bake on Thursday for the fair.  I made white chocolate cranberry oatmeal, peanut butter, chocolate chip, and a chewy cinnamon cookie dough.  I put them all in gallon ziploc bags and placed in the fridge.  All I have to do is bake them tomorrow.  It will save me a ton of time so I can concentrate on my yeast breads! I LOVE THE FAIR!!!

The important question-have you posted the recipes in your recipe box or can you link them here? The chewy cinnamon cookie sounds delish. Actually, the rest sound pretty good too (if you can just keep Gary's fingers out of the cookie jar.)

I love making a few different kinds of cookies too, I always make 2 cookies and a cake or brownies all at once, since sugar and butter are the base, I mix them all then do the dry and mix them one at a time with the wet-dry. It's quick and easy, lasts about one week in our house!

About Me
I learned to cook watching my mom and my Grandma's cook - who all are the best in the world! I have huge garden and I can a lot of stuff for winter. My daughter would'nt dream of eating a pie that was store bought! And we raise chickens. There is nothing that compares to farm fresh eggs. They just make your baked goods taste better.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food! If it's fattening, chocolate or salty I'm in! I love to take leftovers and transform them into something wow!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always made sugar cookies with us kids at Christmas time and do the same thing now! I used to love to pick out a recipe and Mom would let me got to town in the kitchen! At Christmas I also make tons of candy's, breads, and cookies that I give away to neighbors and family for gifts.
My cooking triumphs
I love to enter canned goods and baked goods in the county fair! I have won quite a few ribbons! I recently had a recipe published in Nebraska Life Magazine's cookbook. I was so excited.
My cooking tragedies
One time I tried to make pierogies when I was about 15. Well I didn't realize how much a cast iron skillet would smoke when it got hot! I ended up filling the house with a lovely smokey aroma! I never have made them again! Another time I tried to make chicken satay, and my husband and daughter about gagged when they tried the sauce. As they said peanut butter doesn't go with chicken! But I loved it. They were scraping the sauce off the chicken. They won't let me live that one down!
