I think if I have name my kids’ favorite cookies, it will most certainly be –sugar cookies. Friends, sugar cookies don’t last at my house. It’s good and bad. Right? The Santa Cookie jar I have in my kitchen, never gets shut for more then two minutes until another hand scoops up a cookie 🙂

So I tried to make them a ‘lil better for ya (and the kiddos) but can’t mess with the formula too much, and fact is, these are called s-u-g-a-r cookies for a reason. So eat moderately and most importantly, share with others.

I made this one pretty batch while the kids were at school. I knew these sugar cookies wouldn’t last one frosting spreading or photo shoot if the kids were here. Sure enough, on my second batch only a day later, the kids were so eager to eat the cookies, I barely rolled them into a ball. Hahaha. My kids love frosting the cookies themselves because they can over-do it, we all know it 🙂
