And that’s good enough for me! I’m a bit of an odd one when it comes to desserts. If we are out at a restaurant, I rarely get dessert because I often find myself disappointed by them. Not that I don’t admire the skills behind these complex culinary creations, it’s just sometimes I would rather have an old fashioned, simple dessert. I have always been a cookie person—from Oreos to my beloved Black & White cookie, I find them delicious.
One day I decided to make some sugar cookies because I had never made them before and wanted to try my hand at decorating them. This is a very new hobby, but boy do I enjoy it. There are many amazing cookie blogs out there for fantastic tips and inspiration (Sugarbelle and Sweetopia, are some of my favorites—great tutorials and recipes). My skills aren’t quite as developed as I’d like them to be and I’ve got a lot more to learn, but I am happy with my progress so far. I hope to continue practicing and creating these cute (and yummy) treats.
Just a note—I have absolutely no artistic/drawing talent (I’m lucky if a stick figure comes out decent), so you do not need to be especially artsy to start making some cookies. If I can do it, so can you!
Here’s a look at the cookies I’ve made so far (none of the photos are staged or really ‘photo pretty’– sorry!):
My first-ever cookies were for Rona’s baby shower! Her colors were lavender and grey.
I skipped sugar cookies for Christmas because I made a ton of other cookies instead. Next Christmas I hope to do both!
Here are some Easter Egg cookies—it was fun to work with all of the different colors and patterns.
These fall themed cookies were ideal for Thanksgiving. They went quickly at dessert time!
For St. Patty’s I just did some simple shamrocks because I was super pressed on time.
These spring themed cookies were the biggest batch I’ve made—71 (well 72, but one bunny sadly lost his ears). They were packaged and stickered for my husband as a thank you gift to his clients. It took a while to do, but these are my favorite cookies yet!
I look forward to making many more! Have any of you made some adorable treats?
