TWD: Grandma's All-Occasion Sugar Cookies

This weeks pick is by Ulrike from Kuchenlatein. If you'd like the recipe you can find it on her site. I'm a little tardy this week but I did have the intention of posting this yesterday! I've been sick and so busy with things that I just didn't have time to post this until now. I didn't make the Linzer Sables last week but I did make them this last weekend along with the sugar cookies. I will be posting them hopefully this weekend but that all depends on if I can find the time. This weekend is shaping up to be another busy one even though I should be resting to get over this stupid cold.

Anyways back to the sugar cookies. I found that the dough was pretty sticky and hard to roll out and cut so I only did a few like that. With the rest I did the slice method. Even after letting them rest in the fridge I thought that the dough was still too soft to cut so I stuck them in the freezer for about 30 minutes to make them easier to slice. I was going to do a cream cheese frosting but decided that chocolate and some sprinkles would be a better choice for the cookies. These cookies turned out pretty good, but of course the plain ones weren't as good as the ones with chocolate on them.

Hopefully I will be on time for next weeks Buttery Jam Cookies, but no promises since it happens to fall on my birthday!
