is around the corner and I wanted to make some simple yet pretty cookies for
the holiday. I made Sugar Cookies and using a simple alphabet impression tool I
stamped “GIVE THANKS” on each cookie. To make them little more
special and even more delicious I coated back of the cookies with chocolate. I
hope you’ll give these a try.
