TWD - Rewind - Grandma's All Occasion Sugar Cookies


Wow!  The second last week of Tuesdays with Dorie - ever.  It makes me rather wistful that after more than three years, my weekly fix of Baking - From My Home to Yours is no more.  I have met some great fellow bakers through this group, and will miss checking up on what they are doing every week. 

This week is a rewind - a choose your own adventure of sorts.  I decided to make Grandma's All Occasion Sugar Cookies, recognising how useful they would be as part of my homemade Christmas gift boxes.

Taking my cue from some of the other bakers when we made these back in December 2008, I made these cookies as the slice and bake kind - so much easier to deal with when using this soft dough - and rolled the sides in festive green and red sanding sugar.

To check out what the other TWD bakers made for their rewind, visit the LYL section of the website.

I found the recipe for these from NPR--they sound amazing (especially with that extra egg yolk!). I'm a huge fan of slice and bake--no counter to clean!

Very Christmassy looking cookies. I like the idea of the coloured edges very much. Today is my baking day, so I might just borrow this.

Mmm! I'm going to be doing Christmas cookies this week - just one or two batches as a hostess gift. Gift boxes sound very ambitious! (Lucky recipients!)

I remember some bakers made the Sablés (was it last year? or the year before?) with the red and green decoration sugar. It looks so great!

Oh how cute! They're in Christmas colours too (although I bet they'd be great in other colours to match an event too :) ).
