"Kee-Coo!" "More!"


Some serious cookie baking happened around here on Friday producing the most delish sugar cookies I think I have tasted in a long time. In an effort to provide you with a treat more meaningful than my words on the screen here is the recipe......Happy Halloween!

Molly's Grandma's Sugar Cookies
1 1/2 c. sifted powdered sugar
1 c. butter
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cream of tartar

Frosting recipe:(modified slightly from Molly's G-ma's recipe)
1/2 c. unsalted butter
3 c. powdered sugar
2 T milk
1 tsp. vanilla

For the cookies: cream sugar and butter then add egg and vanilla. Blend dry ingredients and add. Refridgerate for 3 hours. Roll out dough. Cut into shapes and bake @375 for 7-8 minutes. (It is advisable to roll the dough a bit thicker so the cookies don't break so easily and to watch them while they bake because they cook fast and the longer they cook the more fragile they get.)
For the frosting: cream butter and sugar together, adding vanilla and milk next.
ENJOY!
