Mama Nae's Sugar Cookies
One of my favorite memories as a kid are the days of holiday traditions. From decorating the tree, to making homemade crafts, to shopping at the store with a dishtowel over our baskets so we didn’t see what each other were buying.
It wasn’t always easy for my mom as a single mother, but that didn’t stop her from making sure we created some of the best memories.
One of the all-time favorites each year was making and decorating cookies. (Including the anatomically correct gingerbread cookies my little brother made EVERY single year- haha.)
Mama Nae did things a little differently. Along with a delicious moist sugar cookie, and homemade buttercream frosting, there were a LOT of decorations; including the always popular Red Hot candies. It sounds strange, but trust me, it works! A little spice with the sweet.
This coffee is in honor of my mom, the incredible memories she built with us, and her cookies.
