I always love a good excuse to make a festive dessert. And as cute as these sugar cookies are, I have to say they taste just as amazing as they look! Actually, I think they taste slightly better than they look (yes, the flavor is that good!).
In the past, the sugar cookie recipes I've tried have been fine, if I've layered with tons of frosting on top to cover up the bland taste of the actual cookie. But this recipe from Kneaders is amazing! I posted the recipe here a year ago for some valentine cookies, and raved about the great flavor of the cookie. There's a bit of honey, nutmeg, and lemon flavoring in the cookie. So unique to the other sugar cookie recipes I've tried. I can even eat these without frosting! Of course I don't very often because frosting does make everything better, but I could.
And, if I'm going to go to all the work of making the dough, rolling it out, cooking the cookies, frosting them, and decorating them, it's so nice to have the end product worth it, and believe me these are! The recipe also makes a ton (and I always half it) which is great because you can make the dough once and have plenty of cookies to go around!
The perfect combination of deliciousness and red, white, and blue!
And, in case you missed last week's recipe, you can check it out here. Another great patriotic dessert you can use for your holiday party!
