Hello Friends! One of the things I love about this time of year is watching the awards shows. Now that the holidays are over I can now relax and enjoy the season and all of the awards shows that will soon be airing. So I have time to award myself and my family with some fun cookies. These sugar cookies are my favorite when I am looking for a crisp, thin, sugar cookie.
