Sugar Cookies- Day 6!
Of all the traditional Christmas cookies, this is the one I most remember. My granny makes excellent sugar cookies and her frosting is better than anyone’s. She claims it is nothing special and that she simply follows a recipe, but there is just something really tasty about it. Maybe it’s just because Granny made them.
In any case, I knew I had to include them in the 12 days...what’s Christmas without a plate of stars and bells, frosted in red and green?
Of course, Jena and Maddie immediately jumped on these cookies when I asked for their favs. These girls love anything sweet: doesn’t matter if it’s cookie dough, rice krispie treats or frosting- on top of cookie, cupcake, or in the can. We may or may not have once eaten our combined weights in cupcakes and frosting.
This dough was a little sticky, and frustrated me easily. So, I only made two Christmas trees and said “screw it” and rolled the rest into sugar cookie balls. It’s easy to get lazy when you’re making 12 cookies in 2 weeks...what was I thinking?
I totally just copied the recipe from Happy Herbivore (I love that site!) Only change: I used 1 tablespoon flax with 3 tablespoons of water instead of the ener-g-"egg"
