Guilty pleasure confession, I am not immune to the thrall of store bought baked goods. I especially love those pastel iced sugar cookies you get in the grocery store bakery section, so when I saw a recipe for homemade frosted sugar cookies making rounds across the Internet, I made sure to put it in my "to make" file.
Mike has been bugging me to make something for him to take to work, and I thought it would finally be a good time to try out the recipe. The verdict: totally delicious. Soft and buttery without all the nasty chemicals that are in store bought cookies. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
I used this recipe from Annie Eats and decorated them with a fall theme. The recipe yield says 24 large cookies, but I got about 40 medium size cookies out of the batch, and I can't imagine making them any bigger. The key is to keep an eye on them and not over bake them to ensure they stay nice and soft.
