Happy Valentine’s Day my friends! I’m not a big fan of the sugar cookie and all the work that is involved in making them so I almost never do it which you’d find totally surprising if you saw how many cookie cutters I own. Anyway my four year old really wanted to bring Valentine’s heart cookies to his little preschool class so in a weak moment I said yes and then promptly procrastinated the task until the night before they were needed.
Then I panicked and put out an SOS to my Twitter peeps.
I asked if anyone had a good sugar cookie recipe that didn’t call for dough chilling. The whole idea of me psyching myself up to make cookies and then having to wait for dough to chill just burns me up. When I’m on a roll (get it, roll, ha ha ha!), I don’t want to wait for no dough to chill. Thankfully two ladies came to my rescue. Lori from Not the Mother of the Year blog sent me the link to Large Batch Roll-Out Cookies from Wilton that require no chilling whatsoever. Now that’s what I’m talking about! We made up a batch of those babies and then realized we needed some kind of icing. Only I was tired by this point and wanted something super easy. Which is where Liz of Hoosier Homemade comes in. I found a Sugar Cookie post on her blog where she shares that she just takes her cookies and dips them in melted chocolate and adds sprinkles. So brilliant! So easy! So my new favorite method of cookie icing! Thanks ladies for saving me, the cookies turned out great!
