Brown Sugar Snickerdoodles

I received a copious amount of brown sugar from Dixie Crystals as part of the Third Annual Good Cookies Food Bloggers' Valentine's Event. The decision to craft a recipe around their generous gift, however, was my own. It's a terrific day to talk about dessert! Wait - isn't every day a good day to talk… Continue reading Brown Sugar Snickerdoodles

Soft + Fluffy Frosted Sugar Cookies

What, another cookie recipe, right on the heels of my delicious gingerbread? Why not? It's cookie baking season, and while I've got a ton of good ones to share, these are a particular favorite. They're my Lofthouse knock-off cookies that ended up being better than Lofthouse {IMHO, of course}. Probably because they're soft, fresh, buttery, and can… Continue reading Soft + Fluffy Frosted Sugar Cookies
