Sugar Cookie Recipe
So I decided for fun to use a couple of my new cookie cutters, which I talked about in my last post. I'm feeling spring, its pouring rain outside this week and my tulips are growing in my garden. I got a little inspired with our soon to be flowers so I have a project in the making. My plan in motion is Lollipop- Sugar cookie cutout flowers. But wait it gets even better. the lollipop flower cookies are going to be put into a flower pot filled with chocolate cake (as the dirt)..
**Note: you probably wonder who eats all these goodies...i just have fun making them but i usually hand them over to my sweet toothed hubby or pass the goodies out to friends & family & neighbours.** I try to get it out of my house fast so we don't eat them. I just have fun making them.

1 pkg. (250 g) Brick Cream Cheese, softened
3/4 cup butter, softened
