• Iced Sugar Cookies

    These Classic Iced Sugar Cookies are a MUST MAKE.  They are super tender, topped with a delicious icing with hints of vanilla bean in each bite and fun sprinkles.  A perfect cookie for any Holiday or Special Occassion. No rolling here One of the things that annoys me about sugar cookies is having to roll them out.  Rolling pins and I don’t have the best relationship.  I tend to roll things too thin, or not thin enough…it just never seems to be right.  With these cookies though there is no rolling…that is one of the reasons why I love these cookies. I also love how tender they are.  Not so…

  • Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

    Sugar Cookies have never been better than these Gluten Free Sugar Cookies!  Yes… Gluten Free and they are AMAZING! The Great Sugar Cookie Debate… Are you a thin & crispy sugar cookie person or a fluffy and chewy sugar cookie person?  For me I like both.   My MeeMaw would make me her sugar cookies every time I would come see her (you can find the recipe here), and they were thin & crispy and SO GOOD!  Like super yummy, I would eat all of them and not share with anyone. On the other hand we had a family friend who would make more of a lofthouse kinda cookie with…

  • Pumpkin Sugar Cookies

    September is in full swing and that means it is Pumpkin Spice Season…right?  To celebrate everything pumpkin, I had to make these Pumpkin Sugar Cookies.  They are my new favorite sugar cookie!! Not too much Pumpkin Ok I know that sometimes pumpkin spice can over power everything and become too much, but not in these cookies.  There is just enough hint of spice, without being in your face pumpkin pie spice.   If you wanted more spice you could add in an additional 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to make them more like a pumpkin snickerdoodle. Grab a glass This cookie batter does not spread so it is important to press…

  • Vanilla Shortbread Sugar Cookies

    BEWARE!!  There is a new favorite cookie in town… The Vanilla Shortbread Sugar Cookie.  Not only is it delicious… it is SUPER easy!! It is all about the Vanilla Bean… Shortbread is a favorite but to really take it to the next level I used [Vanilla Bean Paste|https://amzn.to/2uTD77V ].  I use Vanilla Bean Paste in almost all my baking recipes but it is especially impactful in these cookies.  Not only do you see the Vanilla Bean Seeds (which makes them look super special) but it also amps up the vanilla taste making them AMAZING! Now if you do not have [Vanilla Bean Paste|https://amzn.to/2uTD77V ] you can use a vanilla pod with vanilla…

  • Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

    Sugar cookies are one of my most favorite sweet treats.  I love the thinner, crispier ones and the soft pillowy (lofthouse) style ones and I love the frosted version.  Sugar cookies are the perfect treat for any occasion…these are a must make. Get Creative  I beauty of these cookies is you can use whatever sprinkles you want or change the color of the icing to anything you want.  You really can be as creative you want.   For this go around I decided to use up all the left over sprinkles I had laying around.  I have to be honest I loved the variety…a little something for everyone. Ohhhh the…

  • Easter Menu … DONE

    Easter is just around the corner and in my family we always have a BIG family lunch to celebrate.  When it comes to big family dinners the menu cam sometimes become a little overwhelming, but do not fear I am here to help.  Below you will find a little something for everyone…including my favorite DESSERT! Fluff, first First let’s start with one of my brother’s favorite, Pistachio Fluff.  Now I am not going to lie I was not a fan of this “salad” when I was growing up but I have learned to appreciate it as an adult.  It is a staple on all of our Holiday tables and rarely…

  • no rollin here for these sugar cookies…

    Summer is here.  The kids are almost out of school (or maybe they already are) and that means it is time to BAKE!  What do you like to bake int he summer…how about cookies?  How about no roll sugar cookies?  OK perfect…lets start there!! I just love the light texture of the cookie with the sweet frosting that is colored in all the best summer colors…or any colors you want. No rolling here The one problem I have with frosted sugar cookies though is that most of them require you to refrigerate them, then roll them out, then bake them, let them cool then finally frost them.  Now I understand that they are totally…

  • you’ve been good all week

    I can’t believe the first full week of 2017 is already gone.  So what are your New Years resolutions?  I have made a few and will share them next week but would love to hear about yours this weekend.   If you are apart of the 50% of the country who wants to lose weight or at least adopt a healthier lifestyle I applaud you.  I am all about that, but I am also about moderation and enjoying life and these sugar cookie bars are perfect for the moderation and enjoying part.  They just make me smile. Sprinkles, Sprinkles and more Sprinkles Sugar cookies are a favorite of mine.  I…

  • my most favorite sugar cookie

    I have been very blessed to have some amazing grandparents.  All of them made huge impacts on my life but my MeeMaw was the one who had the biggest impact on my cooking.  I make a ton of her recipes but these cookies are my favorite. Worth the wait… The minute we would get to the farm (where she lived) I would go straight to the cookie jar.  The cookie jar would sit on a bakers rack at the entrance of the kitchen.  It was always loaded with tons of these cookies.  It would take us about 12 hours to get there from Texas and every single minute on the way there…
