Old Fashioned Sugar Cookie Recipe
I absolutely love old fashioned sugar cookies and
pineapple so this recipe for sugar cookies combines both plus some
walnuts for extra crunch. These
cookies are great for afternoon tea or
for a baby shower treat.
You can even make them smaller for a tiny sugar
cookie treat. Just place the dough onto cookie sheets by the
1/2 tablespoon. Reduce the cooking time to 7 or 8 minute or
until slightly brown around the edges. Enjoy!
