Whimsical Sugar Cookies

March 8, 2011 in cookies - 2 Comments

I just love little girl stuff–cute Sunday dresses, lovely butterfly decor, adorable flower headbands.  Every time we are at the store, I longingly look at these things and sigh.  My husband just laughs and says, “Maybe our next kiddo will be a girl.”  Don’t get me wrong; I love my little…

Baby Shower Sugar Cookies

March 3, 2011 in cookies - 3 Comments

It was my friend Alonna’s baby shower this past Saturday.  I was asked to make favors (I was so honored!) and decided to make cute baby-inspired lemon sugar cookies.  Her baby room theme was “unofficially” jungle  (as she called it) and I used this background paper as my inspiration. When…

January 5, 2011 in cookies - 2 Comments

My sister is in town from Charlotte and she wanted to make some sugar cookies.  How can a big sister say no?  So, I told her to bring my mom over so she could watch the baby (I know, I’m cruel) and we could bake and decorate cookies.  I bought…

Christmas Cookies

December 10, 2010 in cookies, musings - 3 Comments

So I decided I would make homemade presents for friends this Christmas.  And that meant baking something.  So, after thinking for some time about what I wanted to make, I settled on piped sugar cookies.  I made a batch of chocolate ones and a batch of vanilla ones, giving my…

April 14, 2009 in cookies - No Comments
