Sugar Cookies

I completed this doodle recently using a stencil:

Star Doodle

It reminded me of the cut-out sugar cookies I used to make with my mom when I was a child.  It seems like yesterday…

We rolled out the sweet, chilled dough onto a floured cutting board.  Then selected the shapes:  a star, bell, tree, camel or angel.  Of course, we would have to sneak a taste of the raw dough!

After cutting the dough into shapes, we carefully laid them onto the cookie sheet.  We added colored sprinkles in green and red before popping the pan into the oven and setting the timer on the stove.

When the buzzer rang, we would excitedly remove the warm cookies from the oven and transfer them to a rack so they would cool.

The baked cookies melted in your mouth!  And they were perfect with a glass of milk…

Do you remember baking holiday cookies with your mom or grandma?  I’d love to hear about it!

Happy Baking!  🙂

    Great artwork and cutters, Jill. My two aren’t bothered about cookies. I want to try chocolate bark or something instead.
