This year, though, I am a wee bit overextended, and I find myself wishing for just an hour of Christmas cookie fun instead of a whole day. Enter the homemade lofthouse cookie. Oh...Oh my.
My sister-in-law, another baking Lore (who has her own great blog at www.enduringtrigirl.blogspot.com and you should go check it out), found this recipe at a site called Annie's Eats.
I tried them. I loved them. I'll make them again and again.
They're just what you'd expect - super soft sugar cookie with perfectly sweet icing. I really encourage you to try them yourself.
Not only did I get a recipe for Christmas cookies, these are an incredibly flexible cookie that can be formatted to any occasion just by changing your food coloring and sprinkles. That's a huge win in my book!
Now, you'll excuse me while my family and I go stuff as many of these into our faces as we can. Merry Christmas!!!
