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
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 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

Most of all, enjoy!

Oh this little lady. I told her I wanted to get a picture of her in her super cute outfit and she immediately struck this pose. What can I say? She’s a natural! But really, I am seriously crushing on these fall boots and wool hat. I wish they had both in my size. The hat is from Target, and the shoes were a gift from someone who found them at either a garage sale or Goodwill maybe. Either way, I’m pretty sure they’re originally from Target. This little gal is crazy picky about what she wears-she always has been. Fortunately, florals are almost always a win with her. I saw this outfit at Kohl’s and knew she would be in love. I was so grateful it was finally cool enough to warrant wearing it. It’s one of my new faves-and one of hers too. She wore this ensemble to the Southport Vintage Marketplace this morning, which, by the way, was really fun. I’d be lying if I said there was no lack of compliments on that sweet sweet hat of hers. What sorts of clothing do your littles like wearing this fall?
