December Daily - Sugar Cookie Cutout Ritual
Decorating Sugar Cookies is definitely a thing we do at our house. I love it when my Mom and Dad are visiting because it is definitely their thing. Both of them really get into it. However, this year I was on my own. I pre-made the cutouts . I find that my kids have sugar cookie ADD. They will decorate for about 5 minutes. Baking and decorating in the same day is something I try to avoid. Sugar cookie decorating kinda stresses me out.
This year I did decorating with my son's and the kid I babysit. It was messy and fun. I tried the chocolate powdered sugar frosting (Betty Crocker) for one of the colors. It was quite good. I think it might of been my babysitting kid's first time doing sugar cookies. He was pretty darn excited.
