How to make sugar cookies
So OmegaDad thought it would be fun to make sugar cookies as a family project. Step one was mom creaming butter and sugar. (I'm old-fashioned. If you're gonna cream butter and sugar, you gotta do it by hand.) Image hosted by Photobucket.com Steps two and three were flour, baking powder, salt...hands...
