Each morning Kathleen looks for some kind of flower to pick, and of course loves picking wishes!
These cookies were super yummy! I found the recipe through my Taste of Home App on my IPhone.
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 to 2 tablespoons milk
Food coloring (optional)
1) In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg, milk and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
2) On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters of your choice. Place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 5-8 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
3) In a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, extract, salt and enough milk to achieve spreading consistency. Add food coloring if desired. Frost and decorate cookies.
My beautiful girl.....
Here she is with her teacher.....
Hayley was hanging out with her Nana and Pop Pop that night. So they each got some individual time out.
What a lovely evening it was!
Watching my little girl grow up with tears in my eyes.....a very proud momma :-)
