I mentioned previously that cookies are my weakness, then I found this picture. It started young!
To get my cookie fix, I set out to make Christmas sugar cookies, and I fully intended to have nice Christmas shapes with perfect icing decorations. However, staying real I am ‘Mommy Hates Cooking’, which means I am still learning.
In saying that, I learned after making this that the dough needs to be very flat or the cookies will fluff up and rise making them irregularly large shapes. I am also sure the applesauce I used did not help the fluff factor!
Fully knowing that I am still learning, I also used part of the dough to make simple drop cookies. These turned out pretty and tasted amazing!
I used the Soft Christmas Cookies recipe, which happens to be a fabulous recipe. I did substitute 1/2 of the butter for applesauce to at least make myself feel like I was saving calories.
I will be trying these again soon, taking what I learned and making cute Christmas shapes. In the meantime, I’m going to eat all of these lovely drop cookies!
