Because it's Wednesday, because it's raining, because the day got off to a rough start for just about everyone I've talked to. I made these cookies. They are sugar cookies with butter-cream icing that has been dyed yellow. They are delicious with a big ol' glass of milk. They have made my day better. I got this sugar cookie recipe from my sister in law Olie. I think it's a pretty wide spread recipe but it is by far my favorite. It makes lots and it's really simple.
Once they've cooled you can top them with whatever kind of icing you dig. What is not shown here is that I spent many an hour last night attempting to make my own butter cream icing, sans powdered sugar. It didn't work out. I moved on. We got a divorce.
