Baking Sugar Cookies!

December 20, 2016

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year to spend with family and friends, and to bake some delicious cookies as well. My favorite cookies are sugar cookies. Whether it is store bought or made from scratch, they  will always be my favorite cookies to snack on. My uncle Larry makes the most incredible, delicious, thin sugar cookies ever.  Each event we attend he always has a few batches of sugar cookies available for the family to dig in.  I love them because they are not too thick and just the right amount of crispiness for you to more and more.  They can be quite addictive.  So I decided to try out uncle Larry’s famous sugar cookies. 

fullsizerender-9With the help of the kids, they gathered all the ingredients on the counter while I got the mixer ready.  Butter and eggs were mixed together for a smooth texture. We added some sugar, vanilla and let it mix a little longer. Finally, it was time to add the flour to create a smooth thick, yummy cookie dough. Yes, the kids had a lot of fun.

We all played around, and then realized how cold it was and decided it was time to head back home.

The parchment paper will prevent the cookie dough from sticking on to your rolling pin.  The kids had so much fun rolling out the cookie dough. Then it was time to press the cookie cutters (star, gingerbread man, and Christmas tree) on the dough. 


The kids had so much fun.  My son said it was like Play-doh, but you can eat this one. That made me laugh out loud.  We decorated some with some colorful sprinkles and the rest we left plain.  Finally, it was time to place them in the oven for 8-10 minutes until they were done.
