This morning my sister & her kiddos met us for a skate at the local rink. The kids had fun skating around for an hour or so.
We headed to the Country Doll House in Carnduff for lunch and then to the Christmas Store to take a peek.
Auntie Amber made her famous sugar cookies for the kids to have fun decorating in the next couple of days.
SUGAR COOKIES...from Amber's kitchen
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cream butter & sugar in a large bowl. Beat in the egg & vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour & baking powder. Add flour mixture to the egg mixture one cup at a time in a large bowl, kneed with hands. The dough will be a little stiff, if too dry, then add a tsp of water at a time until the dough holds together. Roll our to 1/4" thickness and cut out with cookie cutters. Bake for 6 - 10 minutes or until edges brown. Cool on a wire rack.
