Sugar Cookie Party!

When Jenny and I were in college we used to make about six dozen sugar cookies every Christmas, decorate them, and give them away all around the neighborhood. We had two ovens in our little house but it still took most of a day.

This year for Valentine's Day I resurrected that tradition with my nieces. I purchased my trusty Betty Crocker mix (you know I don't do this from scratch) and whipped frosting, some food dye and sprinkles and we made a big, sugary mess! Mylo was not enthusiastic at first about the frosting but he warmed up a little by the end. Patrick was a surprising participant and helped decorate quite a few, including the genius "BE MINE" cookie featured above. I think we may need to do this again for St. Paddy's Day!
