Christmas Cookies: Brown Sugar "Slice & Bake"
I adore the blog "The Way the Cookie Crumbles". Bridget, the author, is a fantastic photographer, a wonderful baker, and I love her writing style. I rarely make recipes from her blog, for two reasons: first, she is a much more accomplished baker than I am, and a lot of her recipes are difficult. Second, her dinner posts are often extremely similar to things I have made or am planning to make, so I don't copy her recipe. However, I read her blog often, and when I see something I think I can handle, like these Slice & Bake Brown Sugar Cookies, I bookmark it right away!
I'm not going to repost the full recipe with all the steps here - Bridget has very clear instructions on her blog, so feel free to check it out.
As you can see, my striped cookies didn't come out as cute as hers, but I think my spirals are much prettier, so I guess it's a wash! As far as all the steps go, I considered posting photos, but I followed Bridget to the letter, and everything I would have photographed looks exactly the same as it does on her site. I will definitely be saving this recipe and making these cookies again and again!
