i love baking

i'm the biggest sweet tooth ever and i have no self control when it comes to sugary anything. i don't buy much cookies/cakes but i do bake them. a lot. i'm trying to cut my sugar intake in half but it's the hardest thing to do. today i made these sugar cookies, following this recipe and this one for icing. they were sooo good! i decided to make them all different because first, i can't do the same thing twice as i am not that talented and second, they have much more personality that way! the freckles were done one by one, dipping the tip of a toothpick in orange icing. talk about a task that took forever! and their eyes were made of miniature peanut butter cups. sugar cookies are so easy to do, and so versatile. and well, super yummy too!
