Tis’ the season… to eat cookies that is! Oh dear people. I have more than a few cookie recipes to share with you this week. It’s going to be mighty caloric and delicious all at the same time. We’re starting with my favorite – the sugar cookie! Last week I was less than productive. Like I’m talking I had no groceries for two weeks so I ate my roommate’s bacon for dinner one night. Yeah. Five strips of bacon and I call that dinner. The grocery store is four blocks away. Sigh. Well to make up for that I went into uber productive mode on Saturday. We were celebrating my grandma’s birthday at my parent’s house on Sunday so I told my mom that I would cover all of the desserts. I made a cake, some peppermint white chocolate oreos, and these sugar cookies. I was baking and cooking from 3pm to 1am and let me tell you, it was awesome. I put on Love Actually and decorated cookies right in front of the TV. I had the Christmas tree lit, the wreath was twinkling, and a cup of hot cocoa in my hand. Then I fell asleep watching a horrific Lifetime Christmas movie. If that doesn’t scream Christmas time to you, I don’t know what does.
Oh, and I’m obsessed with the way these cookies turned out. No joke. By far my favorites that I’ve made to date.
