As with many congregations, the Simchat Torah service is also Consecration. The temple welcomes all new students to the religious school by giving them a small Torah and a blessing.
Last year was our daughter’s first year in religious school and with very little notice I was asked to sponsor the oneg. For many this means buying the snacks, but for me this means baking. Never one to miss out on a theme, I was lucky enough to find this Torah cookie cutter with Amazon Prime.
I like to make things as easy as possible for myself, so this meant finding a sugar cookie recipe that would be great without frosting. I used different colored decorative sugar on the dough before baking to make them fun and this cream cheese sugar cookie recipe was perfect.
