Sugar Cookies, Cream Cheese Icing and Sprinkles are a combination that is tasty any time of year. I love to decorate cookies, but I am a very messy creative. Drop cookies are my favorite. There is just something about rolling that dough and dropping the spoonful onto the baking sheet that makes me feel I am a part of the season. Then spreading the icing and adding the final touches warms my heart and makes me smile. I am always glad no one is watching and wondering what is going through my mind. Listening to the Holiday music makes me want to sing, but my family is very glad when I decide not to ruin the moment. A lifetime of memories have been made in that kitchen. Mostly good and some not so good but worth making wishes upon. Do you wish upon memories? My favorite wish is for the sugar fairy and Santa’s elves to come and do the dishes. What is yours?
