Bake at 350 Sugar Cookies

There’s something about holidays that just scream sugar cookies. Just choose a shape and you’ve become very festive. My mom gave me a heart cookie cutter and that started my sugar cookie making. I first made these and I’ve been wanting to improve my cookie-cutting and icing skills.

I feel like you need to have the right tools in order to make good sugar cookies.

The Chewy Revisited

the chewy revisited 04

A couple years ago, I decided to try and make Alton Brown’s version of the classic Nestle Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie and decided that this is my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (as you might have seen here). The only thing I changed was the size of the cookie. I didn’t have the same size scooper as Alton Brown used in the recipe, so I just used the one I had on hand.

Cut-out sugar cookies are something that I want to master. They’re just so versatile and you can make them for any occasion with just a good sugar cookie recipe, some cookie cutters, and royal icing. When I saw these cookies on Not Martha’s website a few weeks back, I knew I had to try these. Sure, it might be way out of my league (I’ve only made cut-out sugar cookies twice in the past), but I knew I wanted to try them in the near future. I immediately sent the link to D- thinking he’d be amused by the cookie, and he told me that his workplace is actually holding a bake-off for their Halloween party. We totally were going to make this for the bake-off.

Parker House Rolls

You know that feeling when you wake up from a bad dream, that you just know … “Today is going to be a bad day.” Even though nothing terrible happened to me today, I felt like nothing good happened today. My dream just set the mood for the whole day. Whenever I get bad dreams, sometimes I think “why can’t I just not dream at all!?” That terrible dream where you are being chased for (what seems like) no reason just doesn’t put you in the right mood for a whole day at work.
