The best sugar cookie cutouts are called the The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies on AllRecipes.com
My go to icing is the Sugar Cookie Icing. It is time consuming making the dough, allowing it to refrigerate, rolling them out, baking.....you get the point!
|Even more time consuming is make several batches of the icing, coloring it, making sure it is the right consistency and tediously icing each and every cookie.|
|See what I mean? You are looking at 60 cookies that need to be iced.|
|I like to use a smooth edged butter knife from Crate and Barrel. They carry them for $2.95. I bought it specificially for icing sugar cookies like this.|
|I make them in the evening and allow them to sit out on the counter overnight to dry. In the morning the icing will be dry to touch yet remain colorful and shiny. You are stack them in the morning for transport or storage.|
|I had some leftover purple Wilton's Candy Melts, so I decided to dress them up by piping a "6" on them. I made these for my daughter to take to school for her birthday treat to pass out to her class.|
|I didn't want to leave the center empty, so I broke out some Easter Reese's Cup and put enough Reese's in the center for her to pass along with the cookie.|
