A hint of pumpkin pie spice in the homemade dough gives a mild taste twist to these crunchy sugar cookies. Canned frosting tinted with food coloring decorates the beach towel treats. (And don't forget to place one or two on the sandy area of the Seaside Gelatin Salad for a finishing touch.)
The warm flavor of cardamom spices up these classic sugar cookies. They’re the ideal treat for your homemade goody basket. Tint the glaze to fit the season.—Darina Jurasek, Salmon Arm, British Columbia
