Week 22 Friday (6/13/14)

Recipe Review      

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Sugar Biscuit
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 264 calories per serving, if 24 servings  or 352 calories if 18 are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

Just looking at the frosting makes my mouth water!

         These are wonderful sugar cookies with a smooth frosting. Of course, I had to taste test one with and without the frosting. Surprise, Surprise – I liked the frosted one better. These would be great cookies for any event. Sugar cookies are liked by most people so they will always be accepted with a smile.  I've decided to take 14 of them to Curves so they can try out a Ree recipe.  I already blew my calories count today so I need these beauties out of this house. Yikes!
