Hungry for Sugar Cookies?

 I mixed up some sugar cookie dough yesterday and could hardly wait to make the cookies today. They are called "I Bet You Can't Eat Just One" Sugar Cookie. And you can't!  Well, you could if you had a lot of will power, you could eat just one or maybe two or maybe none at all..sorrrrrrrrrrrrry, that just ain't gonna happen here in the house! Why would you want to go to the trouble of making Sugar cookies if you were only going to eat just one? That doesn't even make any sense to me, especially after smelling them bake and sending out delicious odors into your house to make your mouth water.

Check out my fancy cookie stamper.  It does a good job of leaving some indentations on the cookies. It's an old ashtray that I found at an antique store long ago. Whatever works!
Here is my guard bird, keeping careful watch on those cookies. I have to report that he has already eaten 3 of them. I had 36 when I got done and now I only have 33 or is it 32? hmmmm I better go count again real soon. Did you notice the cute mug rug? A very kind friend gave it to me with 3 tea bags in the cup pocket, cute, huh? I love it! A great idea!  Best I get on with my "Stitches" kind of day, I hope you are having one too!


  1. Hello,

    I just came from the Quilting gallery where I voted for your quilt. Just stunning.
    Happy days.

  2. Me too! I found you over at the Quilting Gallery, where I voted for your quilt! As a former sailor myself, I *had* to vote your entry. Good luck! (Oh, and your sugar cookies look marvelous, too. Great find with the ashtray/decorative cookie stamp!) :)

  3. What a clever idea for a cookie press design.

  4. What a lovely cookie that ashtray makes! Nothing is finer than something baking in the oven. Hot tea and cookies - perfect for the mug rug. Jill

  5. Love your blog and I would like that bird to bring me some of those cookies!

  6. Hi Diana, Yes, I will do that. I typed the recipe up as a document and will email it to you. If anyone else wants the recipe, email me and I will be happy to send it to you...Stitches
