Amish Sugar Cookies

I love to try out new recipes no matter if they are ones I created in my head, ones I found on-line or in a  cookbook. Over the years, I have tried recipes from a lot of chefs, one who seems to match my cooking style is Rachael Ray. As a mother, you've got to appreciate the concept of a 30 Minute Meal! Rachael Ray often says that her recipes are just methods. She encourages her viewers to take her recipes and make them their own. I "Lori-ize" almost everything I cook, tailoring the recipe to my families taste. I decided to combine these two ideas and what you see here is the result. Each week I'll create a meal based on a recipe and let you know what we thought. I will give you the original recipe and let you know how I "Lori-ized" it.  Hope you enjoy Tasty Tuesday!

Colby wanted to bake sprinkle cookies.  He likes the ones we get at the grocery store, but I've yet to make ones here that he likes... other than the dough.  So I decided to try out Taste of Home's Amish Sugar Cookies

The only alteration I made this was to add sprinkles to them.  I did make some small ones and some larger ones.

These were really good butter cookies.  They reminded me almost of a Russian Tea cookie.  Blake really liked them too.  Colby, well he took one bite and said "Mommy these are yummy" but then would never take another bite.  Silly boy!

I think I will make these again, but might roll the balls in sugar to get more of a sugar cookie quality than a butter cookie. 

Yes, I did say on Facebook last week that I'd post the chocolate hummus recipe today, but I still haven't taken a picture of it.  So you will just have to tune in next week instead (o:
