Today I Ate Too Many Suger Cookies.

This is not my first time making sugar cookies this month.  It is my first time frosting them.  Last time I just sprinkled colored sugar on them before baking.  I also cut them into all sorts of fun and festive shapes.  I really dislike cutting cookies into shapes.  I can do about one batch (per year) and then I lose all interest. 

I think it's funny that I can sit and hand embroider 75 felt pictures and not go bonkers, but cutting shapes out of cookie dough is too much for me to handle for more than 10 minutes. 

(they kinda look like mini pop-tarts!)

Guess what I figured out?  Cutting the dough into squares tastes just as good, can still be cute and goes a lot faster!  Yay! 

The recipes I used for the cookie dough and butter cream frosting can be found the Peppermint Plum blog.  I found it on Pinterest!  :)

They look really good... festive too!

I want to try and make sugar cookies that I can eat. I will have to use xylitol instead of sugar and whole wheat flour instead of white flour. Not sure how they are going to turn out.

That's EXACTLY what I was thinking, they do look like Pop Tarts! I love Christmas cookies, well I love cookies in general but Christmas cookies have a festive feel about them!

RIGHT before I read that you called them mini poptarts, I said that in my mind! So cute!

Before I got to the bottom of your post I was totally thinking that they looked like pop tarts! I also don't love making shapes out of cookies, but I don't mind using cookie presses :)

As I was looking at your photo, I was thinking "wow those look like pop tarts" then I got to the bottom of your photo and saw that you also thought so. When I bake cookies I tend to "try" too many myself :)

Funny thing. I would HATE to hand embroider 5 felt pictures let alone 75. But I rather enjoy cutting cookie shapes ;)

i have never done any sugar cookies. did chocolate chip once or maybe twice, but didn't turn out well. your sugar cookies looks great. I bet you didn't waste any cookie dough cutting them in squares.
