All of this is to say that the night before school, I made kissing hand cookies for not just my class, but ALL of our kindergarteners. That means I made 90 cookies. I started at 9:00...I didn't realize what a silly idea this was. The store bought dough is too sticky to roll out easily so I had to make the dough from scratch, then I got ready to roll it out when I realized my rolling pin is missing. Lost from moving last January I suppose. So my impromptu rolling pin was a vodka bottle.
Then I was finally ready to start using the cookie cutter, should be easy enough. If you have never used the kissing hand cookie cutter, let me tell you it's not so easy! (Or maybe it's just me and I need cookie cutting lessons!)

I finally finished around 11:00, which was sooner than I imagined it would be. My kitchen was a total disaster and I was not much better (as seen in the pictures below).
However, the kids LOVED the hunt and the cookies so in the end, was the stress worth it? Yep :)
