Sugar Cookies

This is the first time that I have blogged about these sugar cookies. I have made them several times before. Some with royal icing and some without. When we decided to have a bake sale as a fundraiser, I knew that I wanted to do some type of cool looking cookie that the kids would like to buy. Knowing that it  had to be fabulous, I turned to the trusty cookie recipe from Annie’s Eats. Her recipe has never failed me. They bake up well with a great taste and texture. For the royal icing, look to the recipe here and the tutorial that Annie put together here. I only used two colors, but you can look here to see how to make a cool spiderweb. Ella, I don’t know who you are, but your cookies are absolutely delicious!
