Baking Cookies Decorated Cookie Collection

Baking is a true passion of mine.
I've made baked goods all my life.....and my adult kids request certain favorites even now.
I no longer eat grain-based desserts.....but I sure love to pour my heart into making them for others.

This collection of cookies was created to reflect all the joy that comes from taking single ingredients and making something that brings joy and a smile to the recipient. :)

CookieCrazieBasics: Sugar Cookie Recipe

It all starts with a good sugar cookie recipe.

And if the basic cookie is not delicious, it doesn't really matter what it looks like.

I've been using the following recipe for many years. I think it's "secret ingredient" is the sour cream. It holds its shape perfectly and tastes the best of all I've had.
