Decorative Sugar Cookies – Jaladay Style

Happy Jaladays! As gifts this year, I decided to make jalapeño-shaped cookies for my clients. As fate would have it the stars aligned, and Etsy delivered, so I was able to get an adorable custom cookie cutter in the shape of my logo from The Fussy Pup, as well as custom cookie tins from the […]

Swirly Twirly Sugar Cookies

A friend sent me this recipe and, as she’s responsible for a number of the killer sweets you’ll find on this site, of course I was going to try it. And how pretty are these cookies? Who can resist? They reminded me immediately of the movie Elf. All I kept thinking when looking at them […]

Aside from exceptional athletic ability, I’m pretty sure the Giants won because of these cookies. You may recognize them, despite their red and blue gear, as the Best […]

Best Damn Sugar Cookies. (Period)

I’ve posted a couple of sugar cookie posts on this site, but I am asking you to disregard all of them and bookmark this one. (Ok, except maybe for the decorative ones, because they’re different.) I needed to make some cookies this past weekend for the crew on a commercial shoot, same as I did […]

Cake Mix Sugar Cookies

I was so tempted to post my Pumpkin Muffin recipe, but I realized that I have been inundating you guys with pumpkin stuff and should probably take a break so as not to lose the interest of those who aren’t “into pumpkin.” (For the rest of you that are, there’s more to come! squeal!) These […]

When I think of sugar cookies…

**Not to detract from the simple tastiness of these cookies, but I have found the sugar cookie recipe to beat all other recipes. Check it out!** I think of these. The sugar cookie of my memories are light and crumbly, and more like a biscuit – not the ones I used for decorating. They’re super […]

So I hope you and yours had a wonderful Easter and/or Passover. Here are some of the goodies I had at my Easter/Passover party, which included a decorate your own Easter Egg Cookie station (I made egg-shaped cookies and left out a smattering of frostings and sprinkles), matzah bark, and macaroons.
