I have a major sweet tooth, and I’ve been wanting to make sugar cookies for a while. Yesterday I was finally able to make some. I just used a simple sugar cookie recipe and my friend Mary made the icing for them. She informed me that the dough needs to be chilled for a few hours before cutting them out and baking them. Woops, I didn’t realize this until she came over to help. Now I know for next time.
We used some simple hearts cookie cutters, and I also attempted to cut out the word “Love” using cookie cutters, but I only did one because they took way too much time while trying to entertain two kids. Mary made the icing then we decorated the cookies with assorted sprinkles. While decorating the cookies with the sprinkles Mary piped on a few designs and I simply spread the icing and put the sprinkles on them. I think I might have made more of a mess myself then the kids did. Sprinkles are a lot like glitter in that when using them you will probably find them for weeks to come. I can’t wait until next year when Owen can actually help out a bit.
If you are interested in making something a bit more savory check this Sweet Potato Crusted Spinach Quiche recipe below. We made it earlier last week and it turned out really good.
