My inner geek is screaming!!!

And who can blame me when I found these little beauties?
I first saw these wonderful toys on this post from Bakerella. I was so bummed. I had no idea where to hunt down a William Sonoma ,where they are exclusive, of course. I did look at the web site but Chris is tired of me saying let's go to Austin. Everything I want is in Austin LOL.
Well he only had himself to blame because coming back from San Antonio he wanted to stop at a mall there. I had forgotten there was a store in there , and I almost walked pass, because I wasn't paying attention. Then like a becon of light my eye caught the word Sonoma. People let me tell you I sprinted saying ya I'll be in here, my inner geek is screaming. I was so excited the sales person helping me didn't remember who Bobba Fett was , and I got so involved telling her Chris had to tell me to stop. While i don't have time to use them right now I will so be playing soon. So now that I have rambled on about how much of a geek I really am how bout a sugar cookie recipe?

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
