Sugar Cookies

This month as you all know is celebration month at our home. My son turned 4 and I have been posting his favorite recipes all this month. After potato roast, chocolate cake, phirni, it is time for sugar cookies. These cookies are now lying in the top most shelf, so that he cannot take it by himself.  It tastes best when it is frosted. But I usually avoid all that sugar, unless I am baking for special occasions. Enjoy the recipe.

A reminder about the HLI-DATES event that is happening all this month. Do send in your entries, if you have not already done so.
