Sugar Cookie Party

Sugar Cookies Christmas just doesn’t seem complete without some whimsical kid decorated sugar cookies. I found a recipe from a blogger that I follow, Kate at Savour-fare. The dough was easy to work with and baked into light, soft, buttery cookies. They have a hint of lemon and tasted amazing!
Sugar Cookies Candy Cane This season we had a “sweet” play date with some close friends. Us moms could barely keep up with the little ones… a frosting frenzy while the kids piled on the sprinkles… and I’m talking HEAPS of sprinkles!
