This is a blog for people to discuss what they are eating. There is a theory that by journaling eating habits, people will eat healthier. I am trying to cook more at home and feed my family a wider variety of foods. People can just read or join as co-authors. Topics don't have to be recipes with nice photos. You can write about eating habits, special diets, culinary cultural differences, etc.

Holly's Sugar Cookies

I pasted this on here from Pam's place so it won't be missed.

The dough I use for my sugar cookies isn't exactly a sugar cookie dough. It's a dough for a cookie called "melting moments". Only, instead of rolling them in coconut I roll them in colored sugar for Christmas. Mix 1 cup flour with 2 T corn starch and 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Then you blend in 2 sticks of room temp butter and chill the dough until firm then roll into little balls and roll them in sugar, or coconut, or chopped nuts or crushed candy canes... can also add your choice of extract flavors with the butter to flavor them that way. Bake at 300 for 20-25 minutes until just slightly brown on edges.

Forgot to say that I line my baking pans with parchment paper when I make these. You don't have to, just bake on ungreased cookie sheets. These are so yummy.
