Holiday Decorating & Crafts, Parties & Recipes

 

My daughters and I have been busy making sugar cookies for all of our Valentines!  We do have a lot of them, as my oldest has been asking everyone to be her Valentine!  The more the merrier right?

It has become a fun tradition at our home to make sugar cookies for every holiday! Whenever I tell my girls it is cookie time they get so excited.  I have looked for a long time for a good sugar cookie recipe, and wouldn’t you know my mom had the perfect one!

Here is the recipe for you too!
