Hope you all have adequately recovered from the weekend's excitement.
I'm posting tonight's recipe mostly because it's awesome, but also because I'm waiting for my camera to charge so I can take photos of my newly painted tiles and post them for you to see! That's right - I finally finished them! I think they look really good, but I'll let you be the judge... I hope to have them up later tonight.
Tonight's recipe is what I consider to be the world's best sugar cookies. Mr. G thinks so, too, if that makes a difference. I've made them before, and they just keep getting better each time I make them, so I think that's a good sign. Mr. G actually found the recipe randomly online one night when we had cookie cravings, and thankfully I saved it.
I made them last night because I had so much strawberry frosting still leftover from the Easter cupcakes, and Mr. G had a severe sweet tooth. I think they turned out to be the best batch yet, which is funny because I had to alter the ingredients a little - I ran out of flour, so I substituted pancake mix for the last cup of flour (Mr. G's idea) - and I wonder if that actually made them better. Either way, it made the mix a little heavier, which I think is why the cookies came out nice and flat (usually they're puffy). Also, if you have time, you should definitely make frosting to go on them, and I highly recommend strawberry. I just happened to have some sitting around, and it worked out well because the flavors married perfectly together... It's like heaven in your mouth. Never underestimate the power of a simple sugar cookie. ;)
Here are the links to the cookie recipe and (again) to the strawberry frosting recipe:
