Sugar Cookies

As Christmas is around the corner,wanted to share some Holiday themed cookies.When I was listing down the recipes,my son suggested to share the sugar cookies.
Coming to the recipe,the cookies are crunchy and mouth melting,my lil one had 3-4 cookies as soon as I took it from the oven.
The icing part is little time consuming and I am not happy with my icing as well as my pictures.By the time I finished my icing,it was around 3 PM and getting dark.Kids were waiting to taste the cookies,will update the pictures soon.Lets move on to the recipe.....

  • Once the cookies are completely cool down,decorate the top of the cookies and sprinkle some colorful sprinkles on the top .Let it sit for another 2 hours on the counter to set the icing completely.

  • Store it in an airtight container.


      • Do icing,once the cookies are cool down completely.
      • The amount of sugar given is for a perfect sweet,as we are doing the icing,if no icing is need then add another couple of tbs of sugar.
