These are delightfully soft cookies, almost like a puffy, lemon-flavored shortbread. They also have the excellent adult-friendly property of a controllable sweetness, so you can eat them very sweet or further on the tart side. Plus, yum lemon!
Makes about 55 cookies

This is a quick, easy wheat-free flour mix that works really well for sweets (especially cookies & pie crusts). It makes the most sense to mix up a batch ahead of time, because gluten-free (or just wheat-free) baking is enough of a darn pain without having to measure out finicky amounts of random flours in the middle of baking.
These are absolutely adorable cookies, great to share with kids or any adults with a sense of humor. They’re not especially quick to put together, but the end result is well worth it.
Makes about as many cookies as your sugar cookie recipe, usually 40-48.
Minimum total time from start to finish: 7-8 hours, about half active.
This can easily be spread over a couple of days, and several of the steps (snake rolling, decorating) would be fun and easy to share with kids.

A quick and easy sugar cookie recipe that is well-suited to my tastes. This one has a rich, eggy, buttery flavor with just a hint of vanilla. I first made these for unicorn poop cookies at a friend’s house, where they absolutely shone. I really appreciated the simple recipe, since no-one else’s kitchen is ever equipped quite like one’s own…
Number of cookies depends on size of cutters, usually 40-48 for most cutters (~2-inch).
