Cut-out sugar cookies are something that I want to master. They’re just so versatile and you can make them for any occasion with just a good sugar cookie recipe, some cookie cutters, and royal icing. When I saw these cookies on Not Martha’s website a few weeks back, I knew I had to try these. Sure, it might be way out of my league (I’ve only made cut-out sugar cookies twice in the past), but I knew I wanted to try them in the near future. I immediately sent the link to D- thinking he’d be amused by the cookie, and he told me that his workplace is actually holding a bake-off for their Halloween party. We totally were going to make this for the bake-off.
I decided to make Bakerella’s cupcake bites for my company potluck for Halloween. I love to make them, even though it is a long process. The first time I made them, they didn’t turn out as great because I didn’t master the dipping process. This is my third time making them, and I think I pretty much got it down. It took me about 3 hours to make. Some people might say that’s too much work, but I find it so relaxing and satisfying to see my cupcake bites turn out just right. They were a big hit at the potluck. These are definite crowd pleasers because they look so cute and taste delicious.
At work, our health insurance providers gave the company some cookies and they were from Cheryl’s. I’ve never heard of Cheryl’s before this, but they looked very fancy in the box they came in. Being the cookie fan I am, I just had to grab one… or two 🙂
