The other nite the kids and I baked sugar cookies. The dough was divided into three balls and everyone did their own shaping and baking.
Zack managed to get 11 cookies out of his dough. He doesn't like icing so much so only decorated a few and managed to finish them all off by the end of the evening.
Yusef opted for a big cookie which he then cut in half, drizzled with icing, topped with a few banana slices and enjoyed with a big glass of milk.
I managed 12 cookies and decorated them with sunshine yellow icing.
Sugar cookies are a simple way to let your kids be a little creative in the kitchen. Although for this evening of baking, I bought a Betty Crocker packet of sugar cookie mix (I don't normally buy prepackaged mixes) -- my favorite sugar cookie recipe is one given to me by my good friend, Renee.
Even my kids agreed that homemade is so much better so we will be making up our own dough for another nite of baking very soon. And I will get to use these sweet cookie cutters that I found at an antique store this summer.

Sending all good wishes your way for a simply wonderful day. Blessings, Tammy
