The kids and I spent a majority of the day in the kitchen yesterday, baking up a storm! We made almost 100 Halloween cookies and had fun putting the yummy colored frosting and sprinkles on them! The cookies turned out great…and clean up was much easier than I thought! The kids were great about not getting frosting in their hair, under the counter tops, on the carpet, etc…lol. They had a really good time too. I forgot how frustrating it is to work with sugar cookie mix while you’re trying to cut it out. I had to keep telling the kids, "hurry, cut quick before it starts sticking!" It’s a nightmare…but was well worth it. The frosting turned out great too…was a little runny for my liking, but I just added extra confectioners sugar to it to stiffen it up a bit. I didn’t want to paint the icing on, I wanted something a little thicker…and something that would harden so the cookies could be stacked.
I used The Best Rolled Sugar Cookie recipe and the Decorator Frosting recipe. Fool proof! :)
All in all it was a great project with the kids and everything tastes yummy!
