Classic Decorated Sugar Cookies

Classic Decorated Sugar Cookies

Cookies are always a special treat during Christmas. So here is my Classic Decorated Sugar Cookies!!

Sugar Cookies are the easiest and best cookies that’s so simple to make. I am so glad I made these! No one can say no to these Cookies. Whole of my family loved these.

They are so good and I myself couldn’t control my taste buds. Its just asking for more and more. I said to myself that I need to reserve some to decorate and photograph it.

I baked two trays of cookies, but only one remained to decorate. Happy! I saved atleast  those.

These are classic cookies that can be made for birthday giveaways, baby showers or any special celebrations. I have made these cookies long back for some birthday party. 

Here is the fun part, Decorating!! There are many ways to decorate these cookies. Once I decorated it with sugar icing, but this time I tried Royal Icing.
