Fall Sugar Cookies

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, the girls and I decided we should whip up our traditional fall sugar cookies. They were, as always, a huge hit! It’s so much fun to see how they decorate them so differently each year. Here is the post from last year’s fall cookie fest. The girls were a little more involved all around this year.



Growing up, one of my best friend’s dad’s always said that you weren’t really a baker unless you had flour on your nose. I thought it was time to pass on the tradition to my girls.


They didn’t love the idea…I’m sure it will catch on one day.


They did, however, love the decorating part.


They were very proud of their wonderful work.


But most of all:They LOVED eating them up.


Wanna know the recipe? You do. You definitely do. So delicious and easy.

Sugar Cookies

  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened

Beat sugar and butter together. Add vanilla and egg. Mix dry ingredients. Combine and chill in the fridge for 1 hour. Roll dough out until about 1/4″ thickness and cut away with your cookies cutters. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Cool and then decorate.

Almond Sugar Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. corn syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. milk

Mix milk and sugar until smooth. Add other two ingredients. Add food coloring as desired.


Most of all, enjoy!
