i heart macro Sunday .. cookie edition

A few years ago, my aunt hosted a cookie party.  This was an all day affair in which everyone brought cookie dough and several of my aunts baked all the cookies.  It was so much fun that it has become an annual event in my family.  

Another aunt has a wonderful sugar cookie recipe.  You know the soft kind of sugar cookies that just melt in your mouth?  That's her recipe.


Sugar cookies by themselves are wonderful, but when you add candy and sprinkles, a kiddo can certainly create a masterpiece.


 And a half dozen kiddos can create several:


And a dozen grown women?  Well ...








I am sorry for the huge number of pictures this week.  I didn't want to leave out a single cookie.  :)
