Rock cozy

I tried to follow a tutorial by Resurrection Fern the other day...

link to tutorial :

Supposedly I was to come up with a crocheted tree.
Somehow, I came up with this

I left it in the preschool for kids to explore. A soft little rock.

Cinnamon Pinwheels

I have been missing lately but hopefully I'm back for a little while anyway!

Cinnamon Pinwheels!

Mix together
2 sticks of butter
3/4 cup sugar

1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix until smooth

Gradually add in
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups flour

Mix. When I did this step it looked crumbly, but this is ok.
Take the mixture and form in into a ball with your hands.
Split the dough in half.
Roll out onto parchment with a floured rolling pin into a rectangle about 12 inches by 8 inches.

Sprinkle/cover with sugar and cinnamon.

Roll "hot dog style" into a log
Refrigerate for 1 hour or more.
Cut into 1/4 inch slices.

Bake at 350 for about 12-14 minutes.

There ya go! This cookie is good.
I wouldn't eat too many cause I don't really like cinnamon or sugar cookies. But if you like those two things, these would be great!
