Sometimes I think we can overcomplicate things. And by sometimes I mean all the time. I am definitely guilty. And somehow I think we can even overcomplicate somethings as simple as a sugar cookie.
But I pose this question to you…why do sugar cookies have to be so dang fancy all the time? I mean super fancy iced cookies have a time and a place and are pretty…but why can’t we have a little more fun with something as simple as a sugar cookie?
I, personally, like to come up with cute words or phrases, write them on the cookie in icing and throw some glittery sprinkles on it and call it a day.
For instance, ALWAYS. My fellow Harry Potter nerds will totally see this and think yes, that should definitely be added to the conversation hearts as a love word. Because, always. And yes, I realize I spelled #1Boo wrong to most people…but I like Halloween and I thought it was cute. And guess what? it was delicious.
By not overcomplicating the cookie the kids get me to make them more cookies and I have more fun with them. My 6 year old can decorate hers however she wants, and I get pretty cookies that are totally instagrammable and there is no stress! [Except for making sure the phrase or word I write on the cookie is kid friendly and not offensive to anyone. Which is harder than it sounds.]
PS – I like to use the sugar cookie recipe from Mrs. Fields 🙂
