I'm always on the look out for good sugar cookie recipes.
I recently came upon one that claimed it was the "Best Sugar Cookie Recipe Ever." Big talk.
I have no idea where I saw it online. No idea at all. I looked too. Though, I would say that it was pretty typical of a sugar cookie. And I've tried a lot. Most of them taste pretty close to the same.
But that's not the best part of these cookies. It was the FROSTING. I accidentally bought Betty Crocker Whipped Strawberry Mist Frosting.
Normally, I don't like things that are Strawberry flavored cuz they taste really fake. Also, I'm not a huge fan of the whipped canned frosting.
I didn't even need a glass of milk to keep me interested.
I also found a recipe for fortune cookies at Once Upon a Holiday that actually come out tasting like fortune cookies.
This recipe is one of those where practice makes perfect. So my first attempt was not perfect, but good enough.
I made them for visiting teaching purposes, so I changed the fortunes to these:
They were actually really easy to make. I would just suggest that you actually use parchment paper or a Silpat like the recipe says. Cuz the cookies even had a hard time coming off of my magical, mystical golden cookie sheets.
Happy baking...and eating!
