Snow and Sugar Cookies

We are having a beautiful snow.
I'd be enjoying it more if it weren't, maybe, messing up plans.
Plans to drive down to Purdue University
before dawn tomorrow morning.
Our dear DIL is receiving her PhD.

To keep from idly pacing the floor,
I'm baking.
Actually, both The Baker and I are baking.
Well, right now The Baker is shoveling snow.
I'm not shoveling snow.

I baked sugar cookies
for some special little friends.

If there is one of you without a sugar cookie recipe,
let me know and I'll give you mine.



  1. I love snow! (and you know we are in summer:(
    Love your cookies look cute!!

  2. what's a recipe??? LOL... last baked sugar cookies, just round ones, back in the 70's when my boys were little and that was maybe 3 times. i just let my mother bake them and we ate them... i love to eat them but not to bake them..

  3. I'm always looking for great cookie recipes! I especially need one that doesn't puff up so that words imprinted on the cookies can be read??? Do you think yours will work? It's snowing here too-enjoy:@)

  4. Baking is the 'thing' to do this time of year. I'm sure your home smells GREAT.....

    Be careful if you head out in that bad weather today... We only have RAIN here.. Seems llike that is all we have been getting lately.


  5. It has stopped snowing here ... hopefully you'll be good to go tomorrow for the great event. Your house must smell so Christmassy.


  6. I'd rather be baking than shoveling:)

    Cute cookies..hope you get to go!!

  7. They are perfectly cut out and the colors are gorgeous!!! I get the feeling this is for children, they will o crazy over them!! You are always so thoughtful!! Sleet, rain and snow here today, gone by this evening. Just at the right time that Phil had to cancel all his morning plans...

  8. I hope the weather cooperates.It would be a shame to miss such a memorable occasion. I'm throwing salt over my shoulder with fingers crossed. My best to your newly minted PhD. Blessings...Mary

  9. I'd much rather be baking than shoveling snow. Those cookies look scrumptious! Hope the weather cooperates for you. :)

  10. Every time I have made sugar cookies there is the aftertaste in my mouth of flour. I don't think I have ever made a sugar cookie I really like, so I would love to see your recipe. I usually end up making shortbread and cut them in shapes.

  11. Oh yes the snow interfered with lots of plans…thankfully it stopped a couple of hours before our Christmas open house. I would rather bake cookies than shovel snow any day or at least have one of your pretty cookies after shoveling. :)

  12. What a lovely idea to bake whilst it is snowing, and such pretty cookies too!


I always enjoy hearing from you, my blogging friends.
