Candy Cane Blossoms Sugar Cookies

It’s not every day that you find the perfect sugar cookie recipe.  Ever try and make cookies with cookie cutters, shape the cookies all cute, put them in the oven, and they come out as blobs?  Not this time!  These will definitely make some good shapes next time, like butterflies, or snowmen or christmas trees, or heck even hearts!

And my girls love to bake!  These were so fun to do with the girls.  Another homeschool project done!
