This year I really wanted to practice baking my family’s traditional sugar cookies. Our recipe is going three generations strong and with the baby on the way I wanted to make sure I could easily whip up this recipe around the holidays. While I’m no chef I do have experience in the kitchen, but with that being said, baking cookies from scratch proved more difficult than I anticipated. What you are seeing is batch #2, which turned out pretty good but not without some effort. Similar recipe can be found here.
