One of my favourite memories from growing up is making sugar cookies with my mom.
No one's sugar cookies taste as good as my moms SO, I always make it a point to eat as many as possible while I'm at home.
See that little *neon* green slip of paper? That's the same recipe card we've been using since I was maybe 7 years old! See title: Sugar Cookies (The Best!)
Had to make a lil' video of course!
Make sure you get all of your cookie cutters ready to go. As you can see we've been collecting quite a few & I'm sure my gramma has thousands more in her basement. Lord knows she has surplus amounts of EVERYTHING. In fact, we just went to Wal-Mart the other day so she could pick up MORE toilet paper & salad dressing. *Future post* A look into my grandmas pantry.
OK, so after you roll out the dough, start putting those cookie cutters to use!
OMG LOOK WHAT WE FOUND!? It's a GOOSE!
Make sure to dunk your cookie cutter in flour before you start because it will stop the dough from sticking to it. Unfortunately, it doesn't always help. One goose lost a foot.
There you have them! A wide variety of Christmas treats (Lions, Geese, Canadian Flags)..
Now for the clean up. Luckily, my mom always does it because I don't do it right. FINE by me.
ALWAYS put icing on them! I don't know the exact recipe for this, but basically it's a butter-milk icing. (Butter, milk & icing sugar). Add a bit of food colouring & VOILA!
JUST LOOK AT THESE GEESE. I think they are the cutest cookies we've ever made!!
& look, we even made a Button!
