My Sugar Cookies from Judy Calhoun’s Recipe

Dec. 2012 AQG CAQ Ashley Hot Springs Anna 044Last week at 12:00 I wanted something sweet. Since I don’t keep anything sweet in the house I knew I had to make something. I got out my trusty, rusty old Devil Dog Cookbook and found Judy Calhoun’s recipe for old-time sugar cookies. I read it and had all the ingredients except for milk. I decided I could make them with water. I just wanted a little something. ISugar cookies made up the recipe and started putting them on the cookie sheet and they seemed to grow and grow. I ended up with 2 full cookie sheets of cookies. I like to put a tiny spoonful of sugar on top of each one and then use different toppings like pecans and cinnamon, different sugar sprinkles, and I leave some plain and make cherry icing and chocolate icing. I iced them and ate one and went to bed.

Now I said I wanted something sweet. I didn’t want to gain weight. (Did you know if you ate normally all year and ate one extra cookie each day you would gain ten pounds in that year?) I put them on plates and put them in big baggies. I called Liz. She was at Wal-Mart and said she was coming right over to get them. They said they were good and they enjoyed them. Now I want some more.
