Now Bake This

Eureka! I finally found a cut-out sugar cookie recipe I like! Do you know how hard it is to find the perfect recipe for sugar cookies? I’ve tried lots and they usually turn out with mediocre results. This week I took a chance with this one from Allrecipes.com and I’m definitely a fan!

The ONLY thing I would change to the recipe would be to add a teaspoon of lemon extract because I like my sugar cookies a little citrusy. No matter what recipe I try, I always am sure to add a teaspoon of lemon extract and maybe some lemon zest too. I tend not to add any icing to my sugar cookies so I feel they need something extra to make up for the lack of icing.

I also made candy cane blossoms with pink sprinkles:

Who says cookies are just for Christmas? I will find a way to make for every holiday/occasion! Too bad my valentine doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth so I’ll be sharing these treats with friends and family…and self. What? Gotta maintain quality control somehow, right?
