Sugar cookies ~

Cookies on a cold day ~ mmmmm.

There is a book that I turn to every year during this season. It contains the most wonderful toffee recipe I've ever made. It has become a favorite Christmas cookie book. There is this sugar cookie recipe from the book. I can't speak highly enough of the recipes developed by Rose Levy Beranbaum, the high quality in the end result is always there.

I consider the lemon zest to be optional if I know these are being served with coffee.

I whip up an egg white with some water, paint it on the desired area with my finger - *shock and horrors* - then dredge it though sugar set aside in a bowl. The stamp ~ very fun.

Toodles ~


  1. Sugar cookies have been my special trial. I'm so glad you posted this recipe!

  2. Those look divine! I LOVE the words stamped in there.. I have got to get that!!
