Cookie Delight

After a very successful school day yesterday, we had plenty of time to get in trouble. And that meant pulling out the "fall" cookie cutters and making some yummy cookies. I had even found "fall" sprinkles a few weeks ago at Target, so they were quite the hit with the kids. After making the cookies, we were even able to run a few to daddy to brighten up his work day.

Esther the artist...takes so much time for each cookie. The boys just dump and run...all they care about is actually eating the cookie, not so much decorating it.

Voila! Here is Esther's masterpiece. Each cookie decorated and ready to put in the oven. They turned out to be fabulous, and a perfect way to get in the "fall" spirit.

I am posting my cookie recipe for you all. It is the fastest and easiest sugar cookie recipe ever...and the best part is that you don't have to refrigerate the dough for hours before baking (though I do keep it in the fridge in between baking to keep it firm). The cookies literally take a few minutes to whip up...and then we use our favorite fun cutters, or just make circles from a mug!

13/4 cup of sifted flour

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of salt

2/3 cups of butter at room temperature

1/2 cup of granulated sugar

1 egg

Mix dry ingredients and then put together the wet with the dry. Put on floured surface to cut out shapes...and I find it easier to spread out with my hand rather than a rolling pin, so it doesn't make it too flat. Bake at 400 degrees for exactly 8 minutes. Enjoy!
