It also means less time having to cook a big meal for everyone.  Sometimes it is easy to get stuck in a rut making the same meals for every dinner. Here is a great list of 10 BBQ/Potluck recipes for you to enjoy.

Sugar Swirl Cookies


Sugar Swirl Cookies

I enjoy baking for my family and friends. It is handy to have something in the freezer to pull out if you have company.  New recipes are fun to try! And I love cookies much as the next person.

My friend at A Bride on a Budget has a great recipe for Sugar Swirl Cookies.  This simple recipe would be fun for you to make by yourself or with your children.

Doing a cookie swap? Your friends would love this cookie for the swap and they won’t take you hours to make. Be sure to make some extras for yourself because you will regret it if you don’t.

So get your mixer out and start having fun with this recipe. Change up the colours and make them to suit any season of the year.

Snickerdoodles Recipe

Right now is the season of baking in my house. I love to make sure we have homemade baked goods over the holiday season. Over the next week, I will be baking up a storm.

One recipe that is a family favourite is Snickerdoodles. This recipe is very easy to make and makes about 36 cookies a batch. So double up it and you have more than enough to send in holiday tins for your neighbours or loved ones.

Hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as we do. Let me know in the comments below what you think of this recipe.

Save RecipeSave Recipe


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I make this heaping teaspoon so that it adds more cinnamon flavour to the cookies.)


  1. In a medium mixing bowl beat butter with mixer for 30 seconds. Add 1 cup of sugar, baking soda and cream of tartar. Mix until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined with mixture. Mix in flour until it gets thick. Then pour in remaining flour and stir it in with a spoon. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 375oF. Combine the 2 tablespoons of sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  3. When dough is ready shape dough into 1 -inch balls using a scoop. Roll balls in sugar mixture to coat the whole ball. Place 2 inches apart on wax paper on a cookie sheet. Bake 11 minutes or until edges are golden. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
