Baking Cookies, Knitting & Online Shopping

I’ve never baked sugar cookies from scratch. Last year, my daughter and her friends baked cookies together at our house but her friend brought a batch of her mom’s secret recipe sugar cookies to bake. Well, that friend is getting her wisdom teeth out on the day of this year’s baking event so I needed to come up with a recipe.

Enter…who else…Martha Stewart, of course. These sugar cookies are fast to prepare and taste great based on our trial batch which we are baking for the Nutcracker cast party. While they’re baking, I’m knitting The Dude Sweater
