Day 6! Cookie Week is almost over friends. We’re keeping it traditional today with my Grandma’s Sugar Cookies. I have a lot of memories of making these over the years, especially during fall and Christmas season. We’d start with leaves and pumpkins in October and November and move into Christmas trees, candy canes and snowmen in December. Mom would make the dough and let us cut out our favorite shapes. Once the cookies were done baking there was the interminable wait for them to be cool enough to ice.
Then she would make a big batch of icing and separate it into a couple small bowls and we would fight over what colors they should be. Actually it was a pretty simple choice. Orange, red, and yellow for fall and red, green, and white for Christmas. When we were young mom (and sometimes Dad) would ice the cookies. We got the fun job – sprinkles! An impressive array of colored sugars and shapes were ours for the taking. We methodically sprinkled green stems and orange pumpkins, Christmas trees with strategically placed lights and decorations, and bells in fanciful colors.
