cookies, cookies, cookies.

Wednesday, January 07, 2015

I've gotten away from baking.  I've thought about the reasons why and so many things where factored into that decision.  Back in '07 (I know!) I started a "cookie of the week".  I did it for years.  The kids loved it.  And quite honestly, I really miss it.  It doesn't take that much time to bake a batch of cookies a week.  And quite honestly, are they really that bad for you?  They're homemade for goodness sake.  So, without pressure on myself to get a batch in the oven, I'm going to try my hardest to get back to baking.  
I'll find old favorites and hopefully incorporate a bunch of new recipes into the mix.
I made these once and we have talked about them ever since.  So, they were first on the list.
Lemon Sugar Cookies.
The perfect little companion to knitting.

  3. I'm drooling, those cookies look delicious! A cookie a week is a great idea. I'm thinking it might be something to start up. As long as I don't eat them all.
