What was I saying about luster dust? We ended up using ample quantities of it. I worked on cookies for 14 hours straight, with lots of help. Leslie made dough; Deb and Heather rolled it; Claire, Jack, Aidan, Elena and Garth decorated; I botched another batch of royal icing. My pecan snowballs turned out more like pecan pancakes. But everyone had a great time, and no one seemed to mind my lack of organization or skill. Jack won the prize for most dough -- and most cookies -- eaten during the festivities. Anyone who wants one, come on over quick; I can guarantee you with my crowd, they won't last long.
