Do you have a sugar high yet? If you're like me, you've probably been having more sweets lately than you should! You know, snagging a few pieces of the chocolate hanging around the office and deciding you
must make some goodies to share with family friends (and sample too of course).
My sweet tooth was calling me to make the ghost sugar cookies that my parents used to always make for Halloween, but thankfully I gave most of them away instead of eating them all.
Here's the recipe in case you need a little more sugar in your blood! ;) It's deliciously sweet!
