christmas cookies :)

Andrew's mom, Jeannie, makes the MOST delicious sugar cookies and they are Andrew's absolute favorite... She makes them every Christmas and Andrew loves to help her cook them :)

I got the recipe from her this week and adventured last night in the kitchen to try my best to make them... They weren't as good as Jeannies, but it was fun to try :)

Hope you can make some of these for your friends/family in the next few days :) Merry Christmas :)

What you'll need:
3 cups sifted flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter
1 egg
3 tbl. whipping cream (or half-n-half)
1 tsp. vanilla

Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt into mixing a bowl. Set aside. 
Cream butter, sugar and cream. Add egg and vanilla, then lend thoroughly and add dry ingredients. 
Place in ziploc bag and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. 
Roll out on surface to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into shapes and sprinkle with colored sugar. 
Use ungreased baking sheet and bake 6-8 minutes at 400 degrees.
Place on cooling rack/sheet and then ENJOY :) :)

This is also the Gingerbread House we made on Date night this week :) Pretty proud (even though I would have never thought I was so terrible at messing everything up that I touched. Whatever)
