There’s something about holidays that just scream sugar cookies. Just choose a shape and you’ve become very festive. My mom gave me a heart cookie cutter and that started my sugar cookie making. I first made these and I’ve been wanting to improve my cookie-cutting and icing skills.
I feel like you need to have the right tools in order to make good sugar cookies.
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.
Deciding to take a baking class was probably one of the most fun decisions I had all year. I met some new people and learned how they like to bake and who they bake for. I got to spend more time with one of my friends, since she wanted to take the class with me. I was able to bake almost every week something new and got to learn some new techniques. Oh, and did I mention you just bake cookies?! It was so awesome to me because I love cookies so much!
