It's time to bake! This morning while The Bean was in preschool (ie: no "help"), I set out to make a TON of miniature cream cheese sugar cookies. The recipe I use is my mother in laws, and it's been passed down from generation to generation. You know you're going to have a good cookie when the raw dough tastes DE-lectable! Yum. This recipe from Allrecipes is darn close!
Turns out, miniature cookie cutters are a lot of work. Eventually (3 cookie sheets later) I switched to honking big Wilton cutouts. (Did I take pictures for you? Of course not. Next time, pinkie promise.)
My desire to make sugar cookies sprinkled with the beautiful colored sugars is the fault of this woman: Sweet Sugar Belle. And her damned delectable crazy cookie website, The Sweet Adventures of Sugar Belle. Of course, mine don't look anything like this, but I am using plain ole Wilton colored sugars from the jar...you know the one with 5 colors in the one jar, right? Not exactly professional. But yummy all the same. Plus, I think she iced hers and then sprinkled. I was too lazy for that.
Try not to do what I did when I discovered her site, spend an entire afternoon on the couch drooling over her cookie artwork. Or maybe you should!
