The third most-requested cookie recipe from y’all last week was cut-out sugar cookies. I shared this recipe last year, and I’m so happy to share it again because I happen to think it’s the cutest recipe on this site. I may be biased, but I’m also right.
Today is a perfect day to stay home and roll out sugar cookies because we just got our first snow here in north eastern Kansas. There’s no way they would let someone like me on the road today: I have a California driver’s license and Texas license plates on my car. I get disqualified from driving in snow automatically. Not to mention, there’s no way I could keep my eyes on the road because I cannot stop staring at the snow. I love it when the wind blows flurries of snowflakes! Our yard looks like a Christmas card. When the snow plows came through the neighborhood at 2am last night, I hopped out of bed like a kid who heard Santa in the chimney. Only a Southerner would marvel at such things.
So, for the safety of everyone, I’ll stay home and bake. If anyone should slide down into our cul-de-sac and not be able to get out, they’ve got cookies awaiting. I’m worried about the 5 deer that live in woods behind our house. What do animals do in the snow? Maybe they’d like some cookies too?
