Easy, Easy Snowflake Sugar Cookies | Just in time for the snow!


Is my timing great, or what?



Here are the cookies all stacked up ready for our neighborhood open house tonight... just in time for the snow!  I guess it is a good thing that everyone can just walk home...



These snowflakes are soooo easy to decorate.  If you can make a straight line and sprinkle sprinkles, you're golden.  All you need is a plastic piping bag (you can get one from your bakery at the grocery store) and clear sprinkles... or white, or whatever you can find.






Here is my recipe for the sugar cookies and icing, and here is the step-by-step for decorating these snowflakes :


1) Bake the cookies
2) Put a layer of white icing all over the cookie.
3) Let it dry and harden for 1+ hours.



Here is the first layer, dried.  


Here is the design I made one most of the cookies.  If you have trouble with straight lines, then you can do dots, which look really cute, too.


Pour sprinkles over...


Shake off.  


 Done.  Look, it is snowing inside, too!

 Emma got in on the fun, too...


With colored sprinkles for her friends at schools and the teachers.  Next up, bath time.


Here is the easy-to-pin strip!
