I spent the morning decorating for Easter; decorating cookies that is, there are personalized ones this time too, my first attempt at writing with the piping bag. It's been a long time since I worked on cookies like this, at least three months, I could tell that my skills were a bit rusty; it felt good nonetheless. These cookies will be especially sweet, they were rolled out with my mother-in-law's wooden rolling pin. My husband has memories of sweet-treats-to-come when she would bring her rolling pin out of the cupboard; she always kept it wrapped in the same cotton towel for storage, that's just the way I carried it home a few weeks ago and the way I will keep it here. There's no way of calculating how many perfect pie crusts she rolled out with this pin over the years, she tried to teach me her secret but I never quite measured up. I will keep at it though, Mom would be proud; and in the meantime, we'll eat cookies.
