Makin' Cookies!

These pictures are a bit overdue, but I wanted to post them anyway. This is the first time I made cookies with Ellie. I was so excited, I had a cute jack-o-lantern cookie cutter, I found a recipe online called, "the best sugar cookies you'll ever make" and we got started.
By the time we were done, we had quite a mess! But I guess that's all part of the fun...ha ha. Anyway, it said to chill the dough, for at least an hour. We ended up waiting until after dinner to make the cookies, so it was a couple of hours later. It was a mess!!!! The dough was sticky, hard to roll out cookie dough that sticks to everything, your hands, the counter, the rolling pin. I had flour everywhere! The flour would work, for about a second. I shaped my own pumpkins a couple of ghosts and a witch too. It was still difficult just to get one cookie right, and I gave up after about 6 cookies, then Brian did a few too. Brian suggested that maybe it needed to be chilled overnight. So we tried doing that. .
The Next Day
Still was a sticky mess! But I noticed some that he had done the night before looked like fingers, so I tried doing some of those, much easier than anything else. They turned out weird, but tasted o.k. We then delivered them to my parents for a small Halloween treat. I want to try making cookies again, any suggestions?
