My 12 days of Christmas Sweets is going strong! Here we are on day 6! Half-way done & still some great recipes to share!
What is Christmas without a frosted sugar cookie? Most people are fancy & cut out their sugar cookies in cute Christmas shapes, but honestly, that brings back bad memories for me when I worked in a grocery store bakery. Imagine sugar cookie dough, a sheeter, & lots & lots of crazy cookie cutters for huge orders. Oh & if cutting out those cookies was long & gruesome, frosting them was even better. Especially if they had to be air-brushed with different colors. So let’s just say I avoid cutting out cookies at all costs.
These cookies are great! You get the same flavors & textures of a typical sugar cookie, but with a simple round shape as your canvas for decorating. No rolling dough & cutting out shapes. Just a little balling of the cookie dough & a pat with your palm & you have nice, flat-topped round cookies.
