Discovering 2014: Sugar Sprinkles Cookies

.Discovering 2014 is a personal goal to complete a daily project throughout the year!

Today’s project was Sugar Sprinkles Cookies. Yes, these are just sugar cookies with sprinkles on them, but hey, I’ve never made homemade sugar cookies before (the husband normally does the baking) so it’s a first for me!

The recipe from Averie Cooks was spot-on and the only problem I had was having to lengthen my cook times, but I think that’s because I made my cookies larger than they did. Especially the giant cookies.

WHAT?! GIANT COOKIES?? Well, check out my pictures of the creation process!

GIANT COOKIES! This is what I did after baking two trays.

I ended up with 16 normal cookies and 3 giant cookies.

Tomorrow’s project is a Love Pendant!
