I am completely OUT. OF. CONTROL!!!! Last week I needed to sign up to bring something for Evan's Preschool Christmas Party. It was at the beginnings of the Cinderella Cake, and I was feeling all crafty and creative, so I decided to volunteer to bring cookies. I have wanted to try my hand at replicating the gorgeous cookies from our local bakery. I knew I couldn't replicate them on my first shot, but I was hoping to come close. And since I have said it more than a couple of times, you are aware that I am *slightly* a perfectionist.
I think this perfectionism toward all things baking is going to kill me, and most likely, kill me pretty soon. So this week, I have been scouring the internetz for sugar cookie recipes and icing recipes. After trying several recipes, yes you heard me right. I tried several recipes this week, before landing on one that was close to my dream.
Needless to say, the boys have loved my trial and errors.
By about 4:00 yesterday, I was VERY, VERY tempted just to go buy some @%*$ cookies. But I persevered and ended up with these:
Not bad, right? And according to the 3 men in the house, they tasted pretty good too ;-)!
But, because I am always looking for the "right" recipe, if you have a wonderful go-to sugar cookie recipe and / or icing recipe, HELP ME OUT! Why doncha?
