It's no wonder my favorite character on Sesame Street was Cookie Monster. I love cookies. Almost all kinds, but mostly chocolate chip and sugar cookies.
And wouldn't you know it, that's exactly what we're (my daughter and I) baking this week. The sugar cookies, especially, are tradition around here this time of year. Rolling the dough, cutting the shapes, decorating with vanilla frosting and sprinkles and colored sugar. The kitchen is usually such a mess by the time we're done but it's so very worth it.
