Instead, I think it would be best just to pretend I haven't been procrastinating for months and just move on. Sound good? I thought so.
I ended up with a jar of cookies. Which is kind of normal around our house.
(I would insert a picture here of our jar of cookies, but they're mostly gone now. And my new lens hadn't come in the mail yet. And my point-and-shoot takes ok pictures, but not great ones. Maybe I'll get over it by the end of the post and show some of my horrrrible pictures.)
I thought I would share my sugar cookie recipe with you. It is so simple and delicious. Also - if you like to run to the store for your cookie dough, try this recipe first. They are so easy and you can mix them up in minutes! The longest part is letting your butter come to room temperature. This recipe came from one of my mom's teacher friends and we have used it as our go-to sugar cookie recipe since then. Before I give you the recipe, go take out two sticks of real unsalted butter and let them come to room temperature before reading!
