  1. Esme, these cookies turned out so pretty. I love that the recipe is easy. Thank you so much for sharing it with us at Crazy Little Lovebirds link party #23. It is always a pleasure having you share at the linkup. 🙂

  2. I love that you are sharing a classic. I am all about classics as of late. I do have to admit, though, it has been years since I have had a sugar cookie. Thank you for joining the Bloggers Pit stop with @askdrho
