Every once in awhile I love to make a batch of decorated sugar cookies. You know, the ones with the royal icing that are decorated so beautifully… that are way harder than they look? Over time, I have learned my lesson and tried a TON of different recipes & techniques – for the cookies and for the icing. Although there are a million ways to do these, and still have them come out looking beautiful and delicious, this is the best recipe that I’ve used. Although mine are definitely far from “perfect”, I also know that I am my own worst critic. At the end of it, you just have to remember, these are going to get eaten.
