I remember sugar cookies with great fondness. Whenever we made them as a kid, which I don’t recall doing often, I took great joy in the cutting and decorating of them. Frosting, sprinkles, candies. Fun. But the eating of the sugar cookies I never reveled in. I never enjoyed. I never even liked a little. I thought the sugar cookies were gross.
I know right? A kid that hates sugar cookies? Go figure.
My desire to eat sugar cookies hasn’t changed a bit, but my desire to make them has been renewed. That’s right, this sugar cookie hating girl is ready to put on her baking skirt and heels and a cute little apron, get out the mixer, the cookie cutters and the baking sheets and bake up a mess of cookies. And then you know, decorate them. That’s what moms do right?
I’ll leave the eating of the cookies to my kid. A good portion of the baking, cutting and decorating will fall to her too, but the eating of them is going to be largely up to her.
But that is not really the point of this post. The point of this post is that, as an adult, I have never made sugar cookies so I don’t have a recipe that I cling to as the one sugar cookie to rule all sugar cookies. I went on line and found a few recipes for cookies and a few for frosting but I thought before I went on my merry way I’d ask you, yes you, if you have a sugar cookie recommendation.
Well do you?
Mom, you shut up. You had your chance.
