Your Questions, My Answer

Q: Why do my sugar cookies turn out on the tough side in texture?

A: One word answer: Over mixing It’s the eggs really that are over-mixed. You always want to get them just until mixed into the sugar and emulsion. When adding the flour and salt at the end (if you are using my sugar cookie recipe), place the flour and salt the egg, sugar, and emulsion, again, just until incorporated and no longer.

Humorous Cookie Cutter Flips

This time I’m combining the flips cookies with the humorous cookies!

Instead of the regular photo, I’ll send you right to the video on my flips page. This famous little cartoon character, with his pal, has been a delight for ages.

Remember the J-O-Y cutter set I did at Christmas?


Well, when I got the set I couldn’t ‘un-see’ the little character in the ‘O’. I finally took time to make him. Bonus: I used the same ‘O’ cutter for his pal, only upside down! Take a gander, they turned out real cute! Here's the link: Cookie Cutter Flips Galore!


Spring Sugar Cookies, Inspo

If your email is set to allow only html, you will not be able to view the photos.

Inspiration cookies? Of course, they have to be spring sugar cookies!

Here is the video for them I just uploaded:

Business Sense: marketing yourself

1. Stay organized, a must!

2. Be flexible with your customers, but don’t let them be in control of your time

3. Always add a personal touch, whether it’s an extra cookie, or a sincere ‘thank you, I appreciate you’ hug. I’m probably known as the cookie hugger lady in my town. People love hugs!


Quick Business Tips

1. Have you ever dipped your sugar cookies instead of flooding them by hand? If you have been tempted to, just know that you need a firm cookie, it can’t be soft or it will fall apart with the weight of the icing.

2. Did you know that adding too much flour to your cookie dough will cause the baked cookies to puff more? Also, that eggs, sugar, and butter will make them more chewy? There is a happy balance. It’s a science, so make sure to follow your recipe for the best benefit.

3. Aluminum baking sheets that are light colored are the best over dark pans, as dark ones will cause more browning on the bottoms. Also, make sure to use parchment paper for easy clean up and to help prevent those brown bottoms!
