I adore spending far too long decorating each individual cookie. Luckily, this year I had some help from my mom! The beautiful boot and left Christmas tree are her handiwork.
Here is my simple recipe for sugar cookies and frosting, so you can spend less time baking and more time decorating!
You will need:
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/8 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup (solid stick) margarine or 3/4 cup butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Note: To get the whimsical pulled-colors look to your frosting, simply flood your cookie with frosting and pipe lines of contrasting frosting over. Then drag a toothpick in the direction you want your frosting to be pulled.
