Cut sugar cookie recipe

 Doodlebug and I were eating popsicles on the hammock Sunday and he started talking about "those yummy cookies we cut with those silver things...."
 Mighty has no idea what she's missing yet!  She was entertained by emptying out the cabinets....
 And he actually did a really great job helping...we haven't done this for awhile...funny to see how he's growing up by the difference in how he "helps"
 Of course you have to make powdered sugar icing to go on them...and in COLORS!
 So intent....but he did say "Mom--I'm having a great time!"

This recipe is SOOO good.  Usually sugar cookies that are cut are a little bland...not these!  They are soo tasty!

1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 cup butter
2 eggs
