I was hoping to get out of cookie duty this year but on the morning of the party, my daughter freaked out on me for not having made anything. Being the
sucker nice mom that I am, I sent her off to school with the promise that I would make cookies that morning, and bring them to the office at her school before her party started.
The cookies had to be nut-free of course, but also egg free for this particular class. I, Super mom, made cookies like mad that morning. I ran out to the store for ingredients and churned out a few trays of cookies that had to be cooled down and delivered before noon that same day.
Wow, I thought to myself, praising my awesomeness.
Once I got to the school office, I explained to the secretary why I was delivering the cookies. She asked me if we had any peanut butter in the house, to which I replied 'yes', but didn't think it relevant since the jar had not been opened in over a week prior to this baking session.
Not good enough apparently. My cookies were denied!
Still not wanting to disappoint my daughter, I ran over to the grocery store and found some boring shortbread cookies that were free of offending nuts and eggs. She was apparently happy with this.
So the bad news is obvious. The good news: No more baking! Woot!
