This post is long over due, but I wanted to do a quick one just to show the fun sugar cookies I made for a Christmas Party the hubby and I attended a few weeks ago (see...I told you it was long overdue!). I always like to make pretty or cute foods when we attend parties. This is when I usually turn to Pinterest. So this time around I found these fun "melted snowman" sugar cookies that looked easy enough.
But, when I looked at the recipe, I didn't have cream of tartar or most of the ingredients for the toppings. So I went searching for some other recipes that I could use that would give me a similar outcome. I ended up using this recipe for the cookies and this recipe for the icing.
For my first attempt, I thought they came out pretty good. I probably could have made them smaller, and used the packaged gel icing for the decorations, but ....oh well! Live and learn!
