The girls and I finally made some sugar cookies tonight. I used the basic Betty Crocker recipe, except where it calls for 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, I used peppermint extract.
For the frosting, I'd forgotten we'd finished all the milk on this cocoa-est of weekends, so I just used water: butter, powdered sugar, peppermint extract, water, and a little too much red food coloring. I was going for tasteful ballet pink, but was dropping it into dry powdered sugar, so I had no clue how pink it would get!
The sprinkles are little peppermint flavored candy canes.
P.S. This is my 300th post. A milestone of some sort, but I'm not sure what...
