sugar5-copia.jpgsugar4.jpgsugar3.jpgsugar2.jpgsugar1.jpgHello friends!

Today we´ll share the experience of baking sugar cookies. Vanilla sugar cookies!. And I´ll introduce you Julia. She´s my lovely little niece. And as the rest of 99% of kids in the wolrld, she adores hello Kitty.

My sister became kitty addicted for her, I mean my sis was not that much into Kitty stuff before, but since Julia was born Hello Kitty has become a part of their life.

Back to sugar cookies, hey, you´re lucky! Here in Spain we´ve not had a tradition for sugar cookies, nor biscuits, nor pancakes. I can´t believe what we´ve been missing! These are great, you can appreciate the buttery taste, so if you´ve not into butter, I don´t know if you´ll enjoy them as much as I did.

The recipe :

1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup oil, 1 cup sugar, 1 large egg, 2teasp. vanilla extract, 2 cups all purpose flour, 1/2 teasp. baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Mix the butter with the oil ( you´ll need some blender for that ), when it is well combined add the sugar, after you have a soft dough add the egg and vanilla extract and then bit by bit the rest of the ingredients. Keep it in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Drop spoonfulls of the dough in a non stick paper and bake for about18-20 minutes at 180º . Be very careful that they don´t brown, or they will taste as burnt butter, not nice at all!! Yep it happened to me, I ruined some of the cookies, but maybe it is normal for the first time you bake them, until you learn how your oven works best for them.

A recommendation: Go ahead and make them as soon as possible, and if you have a latte next to these sweetees, you´ll think you are in heaven!!

P.s. She is Julia!!!

I must give a big thanks for all your prayers. Yesterday morning I found missing Monkichi. You want to know where he was?? Well, he was inside a bag where I keep recipe´s files. The thing is we need more furniture so at the moment we are keeping some stuff inside bags. After that, I made a big cleaning of the room!! I was so reliefed! So, a very happy weekend everybody!!!kuririn.JPG

monkichi1.jpgI can´t believe it! I just got a lovely set of Monkichi stamps and….I lost it!! I got it on Monday morning and today…. I can´t find one of the stamps which was included in the set. The last thing I did with it was decorating a little note for my boyfriend. And today while I was cleaning my messy pc room I realised the stamp was missing. I know it can look like such a childish thing, but I am feeling so devastated. What the hell did I do? All of the other stamps I used were on the table. I even looked inside the rubbish bag, just in case. My boyfriend has helped me to look for him, but little monkichi doesn´t appear. Oh please Sanrio friends, say a little prayer so he appears really soon!
