I don't know why, but there hasn't been anything else baked around here for a pretty long time. But this week (and last) we had the vanilla sugar cookies, again. However, for some reason, I just couldn't add the vegetable oil. Since I am a big dough eater, I just pictured myself drinking vegetable oil. Sort of gave me a stomach ache. So, I used 2 sticks of butter instead. Cause eating sticks of butter seems to be so much better. (ahem.)
You know I am a huge fan of the "slice and bake". I wish I would have had some red or green sugar crystals to roll it in instead of the raw sugar. Nonpareils would be cute. Next time.
The cup of butter definitely gave these cookies a more buttery flavor. Seemed to be a good fit for everyone around here.
I use my place mats for everything. Even jotting down recipes. You still have time to get yours before Christmas. I'm thinking for a guarantee Christmas delivery, Friday will be safe, for sure. East Coasters will be good through Monday. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an email and I can figure out if it can get to the address you would like on time. And, if it is a gift, let me know, I'll be happy to include the gift card. Thanks.
