Five-year old sugar cookies

If you pass on your sweet tooth gene to your five year old, he'll probably want to make sugar cookies....... and when he makes sugar cookies, they are likely to look a lot like this....


and because the sugar cookies are so nice and sweet, he'll probably invite his three year old brother to help...
and because he invited his three year old brother to help, you'll end up with a dozen cookies with a little nibble taken out of each and every one....

and then while the boys are not looking you'll fix the cookies into beautifully round balls and bake them to perfection.
And because the cookies are beautifully round and baked to perfection, later that night you will serve them to your guests, because the heat generally kills all the germs and they will probably never know---unless of course they read this blog---:)
