I've been baking sugar cookies for years now and every single year I tell my husband "this is the last time that I ever make sugar cookies" and the next year I always make them anyway. Sugar cookies have always been time consuming and I was never satisfied by how they turned out.
This year was different. Loïc, my little 3 and a half year old wanted to help out. He loved putting flour all over the table and pressing the cookie cutters against the dough to make shapes appear. We had so much fun. I guess that's the trick, sugar cookies are not meant to be made alone. Now I know
These sugar cookies are soft and cakey. They will keep their shape but also puff up just enough to make your mouth happy.

I haven’t posted a recipe in 6 months! Yikes! Ok, I let my no-posting rut get out of hand. I apologize, but I’m back now so that’s okay?
A lot happened in the last 6 months. One of those things was that we grew a garden! Yes, with actual edible vegetables. I have a few stories to tell about that so I will probably write something special on that before spring.
I haven’t baked anything at all during the summer but it’s fall now so my mind is finally gearing up to turn on the oven and start at it again.
To make up for my absence, I bring you a recipe that I know you will love. It’s one of those things that is probably a dessert but I tell myself it’s okay to eat in the morning too. Perfect, right?
Also, I must warn you, my husband confessed at wanting to eat more muffins yesterday so it might become a bit muffin crazy over here. Don’t worry, I’ll get over it… eventually.
