Sugar Cookies

So maybe Teresa Guidice doesn’t like sprinkle cookies, but I sure do.  I mean if someone was so kind to make these cookies and bring them to my house, would I get offended and throw them in the trash?! Ab-sol-ute-ly not!  What could be wrong with a sweet, soft cookie with colorful little sprinkles? I didn’t ask ahead of time if Hunter Bear’s teachers had some ridiculous aversion to sprinkle cookies and perhaps they were insulted by my tasty token of appreciation on his last day of preschool and gave them the ole garbage can toss, but if my instincts are correct, I bet they liked them, too!

So, if you are like ‘Tre” and hate sprinkle cookies, by all means, don’t make these, but if you are like most normal human beings, I think you should make them and I think you will like them.
