Given all of the hustle and bustle likely going on at the mall and shopping areas all over, not to mention the horrendous parking lots, it was nice not to be participating in the madness. Instead, my plan was to take it easy and enjoy the day by baking some butter cookies. Sometimes, it’s the simple things and simple ingredients that make baking worthwhile. I used this recipe. If you need last minute cookies or a treat to hand out, these are your winners. Buttery and rich with a slight crunch from the sugar sprinkles, you can’t go wrong.
