I'm a little embarrassed to admit this.
Before Saturday, I had never made sugar cookies by myself.
We'd made them growing up, but it was always my mom or one of my aunts making them. I just showed up for the decorations.
I've been seeing adorable Halloween themed cookies all over the web lately, so I decided for Halloween weekend, cookies were in order.
I decided that Alton Brown's recipe was the best way to go. Oh, how right I was.
