We even experienced a touch of that "wintry mix" .....
you know rain, with a few snow flakes mixed in for good measure.....
I tried new sugar cookie recipes this year.
One that was very, very good which added cream cheese to the ingredients!
I posted this on Estelle's during December.
The other new recipe was one I found on a blog and it featured sour cream.
I made that recipe for Christmas Eve. I will say, they were not my favorites.
I did not make my long time favorite sugar cookie,
which I have made every year since we have been married.
I regretted that!
So....I am back to once again, the best sugar cookie in our home...
now featuring the winter snowflake!
