over the holidays, the squirm was introduced to the fun of decorating, and then eating, sugar cookies. this has sent me on a mini quest for the best sugar cookie recipe.
the variation in recipes is really amazing, and sometimes they call for things i don’t even have in my pantry.
in honor of school being back in session, i made a few cookies for the squirm yesterday afternoon. i used a recipe posted by that skinny chick can bake. the main difference in this recipe was the addition of cream cheese. i happened to have some lurking around in the fridge, so i gave them a go.
the original blog post suggest that these cookies be iced, but i was feeling lazy and didn’t mix up the butter cream. the cookies have a really smooth, rich texture, but aren’t super sweet. i think adding the icing would have really made a difference. i have half of my dough left in the freezer, so this post might have a part 2.
the squirm thought they were “delicious,” and the phrogmom might have eaten a few too!
