I like to give handmade as much as the next craft blogger, but sometimes it is quite a challenge. Particularly when it comes to young men I think. Am I right?
My brother turned 27 on the weekend. Last year I made him some mad skinny leg hipster punker PJ pants. I know he wears them quite a lot. There are witnesses. But this year he all but said outright that he would prefer money to handmade. Fair enough, I spose.
So money he got, but I also baked. I know. That's not like me.
These "confetti cookies" as they are known are from Super Food Ideas (the last edition, not the current one). They turn out so pretty and round because you roll the dough into a sausage, wrap it in glad wrap, refrigerate it until solid, and then cut it into 1cm slices. I chose to do this one particularly because it didn't require the use of a rolling pin. I don't have one. They were completely delicious (185g of butter, they would want to be. Ouch)
I blame crafty blog land. You are a bad influence!
