Here are a few photos of the cupcake sugar cookies that I recently made. This cookie cutter was a gift from my Mom – I love it! These cookies were so much fun to decorate!
Here are a few photos of the sugar cookie favors I made for a baby shower. These cookies were so much fun to decorate! I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe and decorated the cookies with royal icing. The onesie cookie cutter is from Michael’s, and the rattle cookie cutter is from Sur La Table. Enjoy!
Beach Ball Sugar Cookies
I made these beach ball sugar cookies for a 3 year old boy’s birthday pool party. As always, I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe and decorated the cookies with royal icing (for the recipes, click here). I used a large circle cookie cutter, and wrapped the cookies in 4×6” treat bags. Here are a few photos!
Thank you, Heather!
Summer Sugar Cookies
The Summer season officially started last week. Here are a few photos of the cookies I made for a Summer BBQ. Happy Summer!
The beach balls and watermelons were both made with round cookie cutters. To make watermelon cookies, use a round cookie cutter and then slice each circle of dough in half before baking.
My Cookie Cutter Collection
I’ve mentioned before that I really like to bake and decorate sugar cookies. It’s so fun to create different designs, and since the cookie is the canvas, you can eat the “mistakes”… or as I call them, the ugly cookies. :) I’ve been collecting cookie cutters for years, and I now have a pretty large collection. Some of the cookie cutters were gifts and many came in sets. They are from a lot of different stores, including Williams Sonoma, Sur la Table, Michaels, Crate and Barrel, etc. I like making sugar cookies for all occasions, especially holidays and parties.
I keep all of my cookie cutters in a large plastic box, and while it’s not the most organized system (they are all just randomly thrown in there), it works for me. I don’t mind digging through the box to find what I’m looking for. The problem is, sometimes I forget which ones I have or what they look like. And when I want to make cookies for a certain occasion, I need to know which shapes I have to work with (ie.- which ones to look for when I am digging around in the box!) To fix this problem, I decided to create a photo inventory of all my cookie cutters. (Note- I did this quickly, so some of the photos are a little blurry or dark). Here are the photos!
Mother’s Day Sugar Cookies
I don’t need much of an excuse to make sugar cookies, so when Mother’s Day rolled around, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to whip up a batch of cookies. I used crinkle cut square cookie cutters along with my favorite sugar cookie recipe, and then decorated the cookies with royal icing. I wanted the icing colors to be fitting for the occasion, so I made yellow, purple, and white icing. And I knew we would be having other desserts too, so I packaged up some of the cookies in little plastic treat bags, and placed a cookie at each place setting. This way, my guests could take them home as favors, and the cookies also served as table decorations. Enjoy!
Yields: 3-4 dozen cookies, depending on size (Recipe can be doubled)
