Cookie Procrastination

The Cute Cookie Contest from Taste of Home ends April 15th (which is, by the way, also tax day). I made some lemon-lime icebox cookies for the contest, for the "refrigerator cookies" category, but I recently had an idea for the "sugar cookies" category, and I'm going to bake those today.

I can't believe that I waited 2 days until the contest deadline to bake these cookies! Actually... I can believe it. I'm a huge, horrible procrastinator, and I'm not proud of it. But, that's the way I am, and I haven't changed for 16 1/2 years, so I doubt I'll stop procrastinating now (sorry, mom). Anyway, I think that I still have a shot at making it before the deadline.

My idea is so cute! Which is good, because the point of this contest is to find the cutest cookie. The $300 top prize isn't so bad either. I'll keep the design a secret until I actually make the cookies, that way it'll be more fun! :)

Hopefully you'll see me in a Taste of Home magazine soon! (Keep your fingers crossed!)
