I hadn’t planned on having a sugar cookie baking marathon this week, but I was tired of chocolate and felt like experimenting. Specifically, I wanted to see if using Wondra in cut-out cookies would make a difference.  The answer?  Well, I think it was yes! So what is Wondra?   I remember it as the flour […]

Sugar Cookies

A few weeks ago I put together a list of recipes that people say remind them of Lofthouse Cookies. I tried a cakey sour cream clone recipe from Recipe Goldmine, a recipe from a scrapbooker’s forum that was supposed to be the original, and I tried some recipes here and there for cookies with names […]

I didn’t even notice this recipe until today when Fuzz came home from school and embarked on a relentless campaign to make cut-out cookies.

Cookies on a Stick
