It's how we roll

The girls and I make sugar cookies every year at Christmas. Mostly because Razor's mother got Licious hooked on them a few years back. And because they taste good. Even the raw cookie dough is good. So I'm told anyway.

Wasn't me. Didn't do it.

The girls and I made cookies yesterday, 5 kinds. It was fun but who knew it would take 4 hours. We didnt make sugar cookies though (that is for the 19th) so I will get to use your recipe. Yum.
The last time my eldest and her gma made sugar cookies they only ended up with 6 baked cookies. Thats alot of raw dough.

This comment has nothing to do with the sugar cookies. It actually has something to do with a bowl that is in the background of the fourth picture in this post. Yeah...the one with the apples in it with the fruit painted on the side of it. I have the same exact bowl! I found it at a great antique mall here in Indy. You and I are waaay too alike. It's just nutty!

What fun. I don't have a cookie recipe, but I usually make Magic Bars or sometimes they are called 7 layer bars. I have posted the pie I usually make on my blog. It is a Coconut Pecan Pie and if you'd like to try it you can find it here: so enjoy.

Ooooh, I LOVE cookie dough of all varieties! I made chocolate chip cookies last night and ended up not wanting a cookie once they came out of the oven because I was already full on dough. Bad, I know! :-)

Yummy! you are for more patient than I. . . I don't do the rolled out cookies :) maybe when the kids are bigger. . . maybe

Thanks for the recipe as I bought the pillsbury sheets for grandchildren to decorate cookies. They looked so pretty I thought the plate of cookies could make a cute Christmas card. It would say, Have a SWEET Christmas. Ha. Your recipe surely will be cheaper for us. Thanks. We have a picture of them on my blog.

I'm not one to have a lot of patience for rolling out cookies - but I think I'll be giving these a try. They look scrump-diddly-umptious! The last cookie recipe you shared was also AWESOME. Cinnamon frosting was supposed to go ON the cookies?? oh.

I ditto the snickerdoodle recipe. Those are my favorite. said...

We are planning to try out this recipe tomorrow :)
Thank you for sharing it!
Best wishes,

babalisme said...

I just love to keep reading what you're up to! Where is Sven?
