Tuesdays with Dorie: Sugar Cookies

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 K├╝chenlatein (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.

They are beautiful, Kelly.

My family has a tradition of baking homemade sugar cookies and decorating them every Christmas. I can't wait for this year.

I agree---it's like therapy.

Merry Christmas!
