Author Spotlight: Sugar Cookies from Deb Caletti, author of HE’S GONE

Monday, November 18th, 2013

Caletti_He's GoneToday, Deb Caletti, author of He’s Gone, shares a special family sugar cookie recipe with us. We are hungry just reading the recipe, and you will be, too! This seems like a perfect sweet treat to have around throughout the holidays as guests come and go. Thanks for sharing, Deb!

While these are a favorite cookie of ours for the holidays, whenever you’re in dire need of five gajillion instantly-satisfying fat calories, these are the cookies for you. This recipe has been quelling cookie longing in my family for many years – the original is written in my grandmother’s handwriting on the back of an envelope, which is now frail and taped together and thoroughly splotched with ingredients as a good recipe should be. Unless you want to be eating dough and making cookies all day (and we do have those days), then I’d suggest halving the recipe. Snitching a few of these with a cup of coffee on Thanksgiving morning will start the day off right. Deb Caletti Author Photo-final
