Snowflake Sugar Cookies

Snowflake Sugar Cookies

Baking sugar cookies are one of the most quintessential Christmas activities. Growing up we would huddle around the kitchen table with an array of colored frosting and decorate cutout sugar cookies. While our frosting skills needed improvement (I remember our tie-dye attempt failed miserably) we were always proud of our designs when we brought them to family Christmas parties.

To be quite honest, I had hoped that my frosting skills would have improved over the years, but it’s clear I still have a long way to go! Originally I had attempted to create an intricate snowflake frosting design, but quickly realized it was a bit too advanced. As many of my baking projects go, I resorted to using sprinkles to distract from my frosting mistakes.

The disappointment of my failed frosting attempts aside, these sugar cookies are a cute treat to bring to a Christmas party! Varying the size of the cookies allows people to savor one or leave room for other sweets.

Donuts are my downfall. I try to resist them, but I can only be so strong when someone brings a box of fluffy, warm donuts into the office! I tell myself I can indulge in half a donut because the calories only count if you eat the whole thing, right?! If only the bathroom scale believed that reasoning.

While sugar cookies are not much better off than donuts themselves, these cute cut-outs stole my heart. Bonus: you don’t need to buy a fancy cookie cutter to achieve this look! I just used the rim of a drinking glass to cut out the shape of the donut then created the donut hole with a shot glass!
