The countdown has officially begun for our week-long trip over the March Break. Our family is going on a cruise to the Bahamas, St. Maarten, and St. Thomas. I cannot wait to go, especially since it’s been so snowy and cold here, and I can’t stand being cold. I’m one of those people who wears socks and slippers and my feet are still cold. I wear a sweater all the time and sit by the fireplace every night. I’m a summer baby and I love the heat. My husband and I are always dreaming of ways to move somewhere warm year-round.
Since I can’t live somewhere warm (yet!) year-round, I might as well make the best of it. Baking, for me, happens to be making the best of it!
I got the idea for these cookies from a picture in a magazine featuring Christmas Stained Glass Cookies. I thought to myself, why limit it to just Christmas. I knew I didn’t have any Jolly Rancher candies (for the red center) hanging around but I knew I had leftover Cherry candy canes. Perfect!
Although this sugar cookie recipe was okay, I am still searching for THE BEST. If anyone has one they want to share please send them my way. Every time I make sugar cookies I try a new recipe because I haven’t found the perfect one yet. Just like the perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie……well, that’s another story!
