Rolled and Cut Sugar Cookie Help

With the help of Pinterest, I did further 
Sugar Cookie research today, 
always looking for a way to make the perfect cookie, 
more perfect. 
(How did we ever live without Pinterest)???

I found some helpful ideas and links below 

Melissa has some practical tips, such as 
not over working your dough 
and working in small batches.
I think I tend to divide dough in half 
and work too much at a time.  
This will help.

Found over at I Can Teach My Child uses 
Sour Cream in her recipe.
I've been meaning to try this idea. 
I'm sure it adds a dreamy texture to an already dreamy cookie.
Found this picture at Jenae's Blog. You won't be disappointed. Go say hi.

Design Eat Repeat is a fabulously gorgeous and delicious blog.
 She will give you a quick lesson on how to make 
She has several ideas I haven't thought of, such as using powdered sugar as your sugar.   

Photo from Melissa blog, Design Eat Repeat. Be sure to follow her.


This very wise blogger, Mom Advice, trusts her 
She mentions using SUPER fine sugar, 
which makes perfect sense.  
She refined her sugar further in her blender. Genius.

Make Bake Celebrate is another delicious blog 
with a VERY helpful 
My daughter used their recipe and tips today and has been raving all day long with texted pictures.
She is a new wife and wants to make pretty memories 
for her sweet husband.  
Her motivation and love for him, inspires me.

No great tip here, other than I LOVED this photo from 
All the different shades of green sprinkles 
make my heart sing Christmas carols. 
Gonna do this!

And another Better Homes and Garden cookie...
Oh. And one more link I thought was sweet!
What kid wouldn't love Sugar Cookie Play Dough
And no, you don't eat it, you just pretend. 
I bet it smells delicious! 
This is such a neat idea.  I have to find a child who would enjoy this gift. 
Go say hello to Meagan at Coffee Cups and Crayons.

Sharing with this pretty peoples:

I hope you've found these links helpful. 
They have given me lots of options and ideas.

Pooh says hey and wants to know if we will give him a cookie covered in Turkey gravy.
