Sugar Cookies

Hands-down, my favorite cookies. Especially when done right - and many people don't do them the way I like them. I've been using this recipe for as long as I can remember - the newspaper-cut-out is aged onto the index card which looks equally worn. It's the card I've had my mom photocopy for me on numerous occasions when I needed a good cookie recipe (because I keep filing it in a place I can't find again).

I even shared it recently with Little Miss Bossy who was seeking good cookie recipes. It make be traditional and non-exciting, but it's tasty!

My big battle every year is how to keep the sprinkles that I love (the hard, round nonpareil kind) to stay on. They're pretty stubborn and like to flee whenever possible. But I had a brainstorm this year - roll them into the dough! I think I may have stumbled onto a baker's secret!

Rolling Out the Dough

The dough above leads to this:

A Trifecta of Perfection

which leads to the impressive yield from the recipe:

Cookies for Miles

Pretty yummy, if I do say so myself. I'm looking forward to savoring these during the next several months - thank goodness for freezers!

Hey, can you send me the recipe too?
BTW, I found your site because we have entitled our blogs the same thing. Clearly you have excellent taste.

KD, I need your email in order to do so! I didn't even think of doing a google search for other blogs, I'm glad you found me.

Biscuits with Honey are the BEST.
