So, here’s my explanation. Most families with little kids love to make the cute roll out- cut out sugar cookies. I like them too. They are very cute, but also very time consuming. And since my youngest child is only 2, she still does not get the concept. I gave her a cookie cutter and wanted her to help me. She proceeded to mutilate the dough and mash it together as if it were play dough. Lesson learned.
So, to cut down on the time commitment and still get to enjoy Verity’s favorite part (the decorating), I found this really delicious No Roll Sugar Cookie.
These taste like a cross between a sugar cookie and a shortbread cookie. I have made these 5 times and they always turn out and taste fabulous. Just be sure to take them out of the oven before the edges turn crisp. Unless, of course, you like a crisper cookie.
Now grab a friend or the child closest to you and start decorating. We used canned frosting (gasp!) and lots of sprinkles and candy. The girls both thought I was really awesome after a morning of making these.
