Yes, you read it right, SUGAR cookies! At weelicious I try to create and promote recipes without refined sugar, but when the holidays and other special occasions roll around, all bets are off! It's time to pull out my holiday favorites like homemade Graham Crackers, Soft and Sweet Molasses, Chocolate Orange Snaps and Gingerbread cookies. After all, decorating sugar cookies with kids is just about as much fun as you can have in the kitchen and this version is really easy to make and even yummier to eat.
Last week I whipped out this recipe for Kenya, Chloe I and we had a blast cutting out the sugar cookies into all kinds of festive shapes. But it wasn't until after they finished baking and had cooled that the real fun began. You should have seen Kenya's eyes when I pulled out all the different colored sprinkles and other decorations. Watching the precision and dedication with which they applied themselves adorning the cookies with icing and sprinkles was precious. After we were finished decorating, the family sat around and munched on the kids's gorgeous creations (even the ones covered with pounds of icing and sprinkles). They were so proud and we had a great time spreading our own sweet holiday cheer.
Good luck I froze a few dozen so we can save a few for Santa!
