Spring Has Sprung…

by Jamie on April 11, 2009

Well it seems the April snow showers have come and gone and the sunshine has rolled in along with warmer temperatures. To celebrate spring and Easter I thought I would whip together some sugar cookies. Well the concept of “whipping” these together was no where to be found in my kitchen yesterday. Some of you know that I am as anal as they come; therefore, the whole frosting process of these cookies literally took hours. In fact, my freaking back hurt from standing in my Uggs for hours on end and my kitchen was a hot mess! Despite the back pain and the disastrous kitchen, I thought these turned out quite cute. The best part of the whole afternoon was that I think I may have finally found my favorite sugar cookie recipe and sugar cookie icing! Seriously if you have never tried these highly rated recipes from allrecipes, do so I am pretty confident you will be as smitten with them as I am! Oh, and if you don’t have time for cut outs, try these super easy Sugar Cookie Bars I posted last week! Have a beautiful day and a wonderful Easter! Click on the links for recipes!
Sugar Cookies– I did add a smidgen of lemon extract to this recipe.
Sugar Cookie Icing– This recipe needs more milk, add 1/2 tsp at a time until you get the right consistency

Jamie, those are beautiful. You should do what I do a lot in when decorating or prepping any big meal – sit at the kitchen table! πŸ˜€ Saves on the wear & tear on your back! πŸ˜‰ I love how much you pay attention to the detail in decorating your cookies. It shows! Gorgeous!!

What beautiful Easter Cookies! You are a true Cookie Artist. I too love this recipe for sugar cookies but add 1/4 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla to the recipe for better flavor.

These cookies look great!! All of your “anal” time in the kitchen totally paid off. I hope you’re sitting, nursing your sore back and eating some of these sugar cookies right now. They’re just yummy-looking and precious! Happy Easter!

Your cookies are beautiful. I hear you on the decorating time suck (and back pain) they are so much work!

Your cookies are adorable! I’m typically anal about decorating, too. A lot of that has gone out the window these days, though, since I have small helpers around.
