Red Hot Sugar Cookies………

I found these in my Better Homes and Gardens magazine.
They are super yummy.  Especially right out of the oven.  The red hots are a little mushy.  {They harden back up once they cool.}

IMG_0054 This is before I baked them.

2 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
Large bag of Red Hots {I found mine at the dollar store}

Heat oven to 375.  In small bowl sift together flour, baking soda, and baking powder: set aside.
In large mixing bowl beat butter with electric mixer on medium to high speed 30 seconds.  Add sugar: beat until combined, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and vanilla. Beat in as much flour mixture as you can with mixer.  {I was able to mix in all} stir in remaining by hand.
Use your cookie scooper to form balls.  Place on ungreased cookie sheets.  Use bottom of glass to flatten cookies.  Lightly press in candies.  Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden.  Cool on cookie sheets for 2 minutes. Move to racks to cool.

Why do I blog?

I have never been one to keep a journal. I have never been able to write in a diary for more than a week! I have countless scrapbooks that still need to be journaled. I do this in hopes of becoming a better journalist. I do this to document everyday life. I do this so I don't have to scrapbook EVERY picture! I do this for me, our friends and family, & mostly the kids. One day they will have it all - because I took the time to document all the little things that REALLY do matter. Everyday life....all the little moments you & I can't remember because the memories are long gone.......
