Amish Sugar Cookies

Amish Sugar Cookies

Am I alone in saying that I love to watch the Disney TV movies?  Lemonade Mouth is on right now and the girls have been in bed for about 30 minutes but I can’t turn it off….and I will probably be singing “Determinate” for the next week.   I don’t remember movies like this when I was a Tween….maybe the ABC After School specials, but they didn’t have the music and dancing that these movies have. They’re just fun is all.  Camp Rock, Teen Beach Movie, High School Musical….

Anywhooo…lets move on to cookies, shall we?

Don’t let the electric blue buttercream frosting  fool you.  These sugar cookies need no frosting or icing.  They are melt in your mouth delicious and my favorite sugar cookies I have ever made.  You will love them, too!

Now don’t get me wrong.  There is nothing wrong with adding electric blue buttercream frosting to these, but they just taste so good on their own.  Taylor was adamant about frosting cookies bright blue so we did!

Enjoy!

White Chocolate Brownies

White Chocolate Brownies

One of the things I am reminded of when I don’t post for a little while is that one of the main reasons why I post is so I can keep track of recipes that I LOVE.  Have you ever made a recipe that you LOVED and then went back to find the recipe and you could not find it?  You would think in this day of Pinterest that wouldn’t happen, but somehow it does.

I panicked this morning that I wouldn’t be able to “re-find” this recipe.  Luckily, I found it on one of my Pinterest boards so potential crisis averted!  These were definitely right in the category of recipes we LOVED…make again and keep in your back pocket recipe love.  They are incredibly fudgy and taste like a really good sugar cookie.  Their tops get nice and crackly, too.  Just like a brownie should be!

I would also call these Speedy White Chocolate Brownies.  Another big plus in my book.  Will be making these A lot. Enjoy!
