BELOW: our Valentines cookies, green icing and all. The recipe should of yielded more cookies, but almost half the dough was eaten before we even baked them.
And here is Will, splattered in green food colouring and on the counter, of course. Now this is real life people...
This is the cookbook I used for our butter cookie recipe. Every recipe uses only 3 ingredients. Isn't that awesome? And I love the illustrations too. No need to buy buttermilk or try to find "petal dust in pink, orange and violet tones" (which you would need if you were making the Martha cookies). You just need butter, icing sugar and flour.
I was skeptical at first about the whole 3 ingredients thing, but we have made a handful of recipes and they have all been tasty. In fact, it should be renamed "Parents Cook 1-2-3." I may start using this cookbook more frequently for our family dinners.
