When my sweet granddaughter called to tell me (in a sad little voice) that all of their Christmas cookies were gone, I immediately got busy & made some more for her!
I've been wanting to practice some "flooding" techniques for decorating sugar cookies anyway.
The recipe I now use for sugar cookies comes from Sweetopia.
It really holds the cut-out shapes well.
I can remember my mother, as she was baking, reminiscing about how she could remember the sound of HER mother’s wedding ring, tapping against the side of the old sifter, as she combined the flour, salt & baking powders.
I can STILL HEAR the same sound of my mother’s gold band, doing the exact same thing as she made sugar cookies for my brothers & sisters at Christmas time! Homemade sugar cookies are, by far, my most favorite cookie in the whole wide world...even more than Girl Scout Thin Mints!!! (which Ms. C. will be selling very soon...just sayin')
I hope Caroline has the same fond memories of baking in the kitchen with her *Nana Rett*.
I did this batch in Delta Zeta colors of PINK & GREEN...love that combination. My hands aren't very steady & I need to work on getting the consistency of the icing correct, but they sure taste good, if I do say so myself.
Over the holiday, I took a plate of my mini cherry cheesecake tarts to a New Year's Day party. They looked so pretty on the red & white plate, that I just had to share a photo.
The recipe for them can be found HERE.
I'm glad you stopped by The Gazebo House today!
Take a cookie with you...I still have plenty left & I'm happy to make more.
