Do you have snow in your part of the world? We took a recent trip to Colorado over Thanksgiving and there was no snow. It was a little shocking to see bare mountains in Colorado during winter. For now, we can dream about snow. But in the meantime, let’s warm up that kitchen and make a batch of decorated sugar cookies. This set of Christmas trees and snowflakes cookies is fun and simple to make. They look special with the shimmery sanding sugar details. If you are new to cookie decorating this is a great place to start. However, if you have more experience decorating cookies, they also double as a creative outlet for you.
The real key is to make a lot of decorated cookies so you can share them as hostess gifts over the holidays. While we used our classic sugar cookie recipe here, you can easily substitute our gluten free gingerbread recipe or gluten free chocolate sugar cookie recipe for a darker canvas for your designs. Regardless of the recipe you use, your kitchen is going to smell delicious. Make a batch today!
