Winter Sugar Cookies

January 3, 2020 in cookies - No Comments - 2 min read

Happy New Year! I hope it’s off to a great start! Are you one to make resolutions? For many, many years, I did. Then about three years ago I spent time thinking of a word I wanted to help set the tone for the year, and use that word to shape how I saw the world and the actions I did, instead of a top 10 resolution list. It has been really helpful. Words I’ve used in the past: intentional, grow, balance.

The word I chose for this year is trust. I struggle to trust myself and to trust others. Being a perfectionist, this is hard for me, as I am my own worst critic, and dwell on the flaws instead of the growth and progress. (Reading this book was such an eye-opener! And I am a work in progress, trying not to be such a perfectionist.)

Early January is a quiet season, a moment to pause, to take a break and a rest. With the Christmas season behind us, it feels like the perfect time to slow things down and reflect. When I think winter, I think of the colors blue, grey, and white. So when thinking of cutters for this winter set of cookies, animals felt like the perfect pairing.

This set of cookies includes Americolors ash (which is a soft grey), wedgewood (a grey-blue), dusty rose, white, black, and electric green. I was worried the electric green would be too bright of a color against the other muted colors, but it actually brings out the softness in them and I like it.

If you’re local, I am putting these cookies up for a pre-sale to be picked up on Sunday, January 26th (see the Google form in the Sugar Cookies Prices section). I am also offering a class on Saturday, January 18th from 1-4pm, where you can learn to make them yourself. Happy baking!


Thanks for stopping by! I love baking and hope these recipes inspire you to create something wonderful in your kitchen. xoxo
