Cookies & Milk + Blanket & A Nap



The recipe reads
 "Best Sugar Cookies in the World"
 and the title holds truth!

I wanted to share it with you.

This recipe was tried in my kitchen for the first time,
approximately six years ago
and it now is my stand-by!

The batter is so light and fluffy.

This cookbook is from our former church
and great recipe is included.
I must say the cookbook had two publications,
such a "big seller".


I drop mine in the little yellow bowl
 containing the sugar and roll them around.
I don't make them "perfectly round & smooth". 
  I like the fact "mama's fingerprints" can be seen.

  Do not let them turn brown,
I must say this is the secret to a soft sugar cookie.
The cookies will firm as they cool.

"Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap." Barbara Jordan

I had fun preparing these for my guys this past weekend.
My nest was full for Mother's Day!

I have spent the last 20 min. drinking a cup of coffee and looking at your blog (I wish I had a sugar cookie to go with it) You have such great decorating ideas. My current favorite, the re-purposed bird bath. Excellent! I love that you can put different things in it! I'm not much of a baker, but these cookies look good to me! I've got to stop by more often!

Is this the Fairview church near Indianola, Ms.? I have to try these, they sound delicious.

Amanda said...

Made these and they were a hit! Almost like like a shortbread taste. I agree on not letting them turn brown. I nearly "undercooked" them and those were our favorite of the batch!!

Do you mind if I post these on my blog, crediting/linking to you, of course?
