On the 9th day of Christmas my true love gave to me...a cookie with sprinkles! :-)
Here's a recipe I use every year for my family. After trying various recipes, this is hands down the family’s favorite sugar cookie. It’s also a recipe used in the book.
It’s easy, fast and tasty. How could you ask for more? :-)
Rolled Sugar Cookies
- 8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
- ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 tsp vanilla
- 2 ¼ cups flour
- ½ tsp baking soda
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- Beat cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla until well blended.
- Add baking soda. Blend. Slowly add flour, blending after each small addition until all flour is blended.
- Refrigerate for an hour minimum.
- Roll and cut into your favorite shapes. And decorate.
- Bake 10 to 12 minutes.
I think one of my favorite parts of this is that I have my grandmother’s cookie cutters that I used as a little kid so it fills me with lots of good memories.
And while you're enjoying those yummy cookies, here's a wonderful book for you to check out.
Golden Alexander is trapped in a nightmare.
Trying to flee her hallucination of a demon, she runs heart first into the brooding alpha male she’s been dreaming about for years, and then her nightmare really begins.
Kris Pietka is done with women...he’s broken. But when he meets Golden, an overwhelming need to protect her tests everything he thought he knew about himself, and the paranormal.
A bond forged centuries ago thrusts them together as they search for a way to break an ancient Druid curse prophesying their demise. Racing against the clock, they travel from Vermont, to the Carpathian Mountains in Poland, and the Scottish Highlands in search of answers and a way to break the curse.
But something evil watches—it covets, and time is running out.
Will fate allow love to prevail against unbeatable odds, or will Golden wake to find it was all a delusion?
