I have a confession to make.
I am a sugar cookie virgin.
Or, at least I was before Saturday.
You seen, I'd never made sugar cookies before. Not from scratch. Not by myself.
So, I was looking forward to this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe for sugar cookies, which was chosen by Ulrike of Küchenlatein (By the way, I just learned that blog name translates to "kitchen latin" in English).
Just for the occasion, I bought two cookie cutters, a snowflake & a snowman, and black & white (opal, really) sprinkles at work on Friday. I made the dough Saturday afternoon, rolled/cut/baked the cookies that evening & decorated them late that night.
And, it was fun! Therapeutic even.
I experimented by sprinkling some with the decorating sugar before baking and icing/sprinkling the others after they baked. I like the iced cookies the best.
