It's that time of year when baking is in full swing! My baking skills are not so great, but I love decorating cookies! I usually just skip the cookie making, but have decided to take baby steps and have fun decorating them any way. It's funny...I've figured out that you don't necessarily have to be a baker to make cookies. I have been taking some of the break and bake cookies and dressing them up myself. Kind of like cheating I guess, but Kate and I are still having fun taking the plain cookies and fluffing them up a bit! Here is how Kate and I made our Cheater Peppermint Sugar Cookies With Cream Cheese Frosting...
Once you have baked the break and bake sugar cookies (any brand should do), you simply spread on the frosting of your choice. We chose cream cheese frosting because it is our favorite!
Next, we sprinkled on some crushed peppermint pieces. You can use any kind of sprinkles you like of course, but we LOVE peppermint!
That's it folks! These cookies really are the easiest thing in the world to make, but they look like homemade cookies! The great thing about it is that you can take any store bought or cookies made with a store bought mix and turn them into something beautiful and delicious! You don't have to be a baker to make these at all. They would make a lovely teacher or neighbor gift, or you could bring a plate of your "fancy" cookies to a party, and nobody has to know ;)
These particular cookies were inspired by International Delight's new Frosted Sugar Cookie coffee creamer! It's so delicious, and I knew I would want to have cookies while enjoying it! I was sooo right too!
I may have had one or two cookies with my homemade Frosted Sugar Cookie Latte!
