Cat Naps and Cookies

Napoleon knows how to spend the day:

Napoleon, Chilling in His Bed

Steve and I are in the middle of our three-day weekend and have, admittedly, been taking some cat naps of our own this weekend. Today was frigid (temperatures didn’t hit twenty) and we both were feeling a bit sleepy. To perk up in the afternoon, we decided to make some sugar cookies and, given that Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, there was no question to what cookie cutters we should use.

Our New Cookie Mat

The best part of the cookie making (aside from eating the dough and frosting!) was using our new countertop mat that my parents gave us at Christmas. The mat helps contain the mess caused by rolling out sticky dough thinly.

It was fun to spend the day making cookies after not making any during the Christmas season. I needed a little burst of butter and sugar today! Plus, you can’t go wrong with the simple and classic sugar cookie.
