Tuesdays with Dorie ~ Grandma's Sugar Cookies


Ulrike of K├╝chenlatein is hosting this week and she chose Grandma’s All-Occasion Sugar Cookies on pages 146-147. This was a great choice for this week and I decided to use traditional cookie cutters. The recipe is EXTREMELY close to my own grandma's recipe that I modified years ago to include 1/2 teaspoon orange peel,1/2 teaspoon blackberry extract and only 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Hubby tried to eat them as fast as they came out of the oven, but he helped decorate them first.

Well, for someone who thinks their not master of royal icing, it seems you did a pretty darn good job on those! I especially like the ones for which you used both colours of sprinkles! Very nice job!

You don't KNOW how much I love those Christmas cookies. My sister makes them, and I haven't had them in several years. :)
