The Best Sugar Cookies

You know those big, puffy frosted cookies at the grocery store?  They look so good, but usually have a weird, chemical taste to me.  So, I thought I would try baking my own version.  Of course, I turned to Pinterest for a recipe. 

I found the perfect recipe at Annie's Eats.  Look at how beautiful hers turned out.

Here's my version before I let the kids go at them with the sprinkles.  The cookies are perfectly soft and buttery.

Be sure to check out Annie's Eats for the recipe.  But, be warned, this recipe takes THREE STICKS of butter for 24 cookies...not so good for bathing suit season!

In other news, you might have seen me pinning random stuff to a Pinterest board called "TSI blog."  My boss has asked me to write weekly blog posts for her business, Third Sector Innovations.  The posts should be of interest to nonprofits, for profit businesses and government entities.  Although its not a fun as home blogging, I was honored my boss asked me to do it and it pays the bills!  So far, I've written one post...The Top Ten Employment Law Mistakes...scintillating stuff.  Now, I need to think of more topics.  If on some crazy chance you have any ideas, send them my way.  :)

Happy Weekend!
