So what is a blog by the name of Smashed Cookies without an attempt at making cookies from scratch? It just wouldn’t be right.
Sugar cookies are a favorite in my house, and I was too lazy to go all the way to the grocery store for my regular pack of Pillsbury cookies. Once again, Pinterest saves the day! I found a recipe for the “best” sugar cookies here. Luckily, I had everything at home already (except for the almond extract which the recipe says is optional) and I made the cookies.
They didn’t turn out horribly…. my batter was definitely too wet and I ended up with pretty doughy cookies. And I think you definitely need the almond extract to offset the vanilla. But they were edible, I got to feed my cookie addiction, and because they weren’t perfect I didn’t have to share. #MomWin
