It's a baking kind of day!

It's a baking kind of day here on our farm. We have 3.55 rain and it is still raining! After the late spring snow storm we had a later start to planting our crops and only have corn in so far. I don't have my garden planted yet either! Once it stops raining it will be a good week before we get back into the field.

If you like soft sugar cookies this is the one you want to try. So soft and yummy...I can guarantee they won't last long in your house!  I LOVE how festive they look!  :)
{soft sugar cookies}

Sprinkle Cookies

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup sprinkles, more if you want to sprinkle a few on top.
**remember to set out eggs and butter and bring to room temperature**

Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for about one minute, until smooth and creamy. Gradually beat in sugars; mix well. Add eggs, one at a time; beat well after each addition. Mix in vanilla. Add flour mixture; stir until just combined. Fold in remaining ingredients. Drop by cookie scoopfulls, onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes or until edges are lightly golden. It may be a good idea to rotate baking sheet halfway through baking time. Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!

Those look so festive! My oven is broken :( or would whip up a batch this week. (hope the part comes in soon!)

We have had lots of rain here. I hurried to get my garden in as rain is in the forecast everyday for the next week. Trying not to complain since it was super dry last year.

Have a great week!

We have had a little rain too (not even close to 3.55)but it has been a nice gentle rain so far. Corn is in and 150 acres of beans so far. We really needed the moisture so we can't complain but would be nice to get the beans in!
