[Recipe] Sugar Cookies

sugar cookies cover 2

It’s almost time for the 12 Frilly Days of Christmas! Every time I think of it, I just hear big church bells ringing like they do on Christmas Day! It’s my most favourite time of year!

Since I’ve been working so hard to get the 12 Frilly Days of Christmas ready for the blog this year, I’m getting really excited about it! I know the blog suffers just a little before I release the 12 Days, and for that I apologize, but you’ve got to believe me when I say that it’s worth it! I *almost* have all 12 posts ready to go, beginning this coming Friday, December 13th.

I have some great stuff lined up this year – lots of cookies and sweets, including some of my family’s most favourites, a couple of savoury dishes, and lots of stuff in between.

I cannot wait!

[Recipe] Melting Moment Sugar Cookies

I’m dubbing these cookies “Melting Moments” because that’s the name of the cookie my mom was looking for when she requested them. Mom described them to me as a “small, plain, crisp, melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookie”, called them melting moments, and I set off to searching for a recipe.

And here they are. The cookie that satisfied Mom’s desire for a melting moment cookie.

This recipe is the Pioneer Woman’s Favourite Sugar Cookie recipe. It is uh-may-zing. I didn’t really like sugar cookies before these ones. I did change them just slightly though, making them a bit daintier than Ree’s cowboy-sized original. I got 96 cookies out of this batch where Ree normally gets 18 (no kidding!), and trust me, they get gobbled up quickly regardless of size.

In the case of these cookies, size really doesn’t matter.

These cookies are dainty, crumbly, and fragile. They don’t really travel well, so you should save them all for yourself to eat at home.

Jeanne, of Art of Gluten-Free Baking has baked up a gluten-free version of these cookies. You can find her post here.
