Sugar Cookies....

 Gotta keep those sugar cravings here is a delicious recipe. 

Bright Halloween colors.

Halloween cut outs (that's supposed to be a cat)

Don't ever forget to assign someone as the frosting licker

Take to the neighbors.

(This recipe I got from my sister in law Deb)

6 c flour

3/4 tsp salt

2 c salted butter (softened)

2 1/4 c sugar

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

3 large eggs

4 TBSP milk

(**I personally like to add a touch of almond extract) 

preheat oven to 375
whisk together flour/salt and set aside
cream together butter and sugar
add eggs, milk, vanilla
add flour mixture slowly and beat on low until combined

Divde dough in half and form into two balls. Flatten into a disk and wrap tightly in plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour

On a floured (or p sugared) surface roll out dough to desired thickness (they will not puff up a ton so if you want them thick- as she made them- roll them out as thick as you want them to be). She used a big flower cookie cutter so they were delightfully giant.

Bake for 10-12 minutes- she usually takes them out early- like 8/9 minutes. Let them set on pan for a min or two if you do.

Cool and frost (delightful receipe to follow) then eat the crud out of them and repeat as necessay until your Heifertitis is fulfilled.

8 oz cream cheese (softened)

1/4 c butter (softened)

1 tsp vanilla

powder sugar

(**dash of almond extract for my frosting choice)

mix cream cheese, butter and vanilla til creamy then add powdered sugar to desired consistency
