If you asked me my favorite part of the Christmas season, I'd probably have to say the baking. So many of my Christmas memories revolve around the food we only eat at that time of year. Sugar cookie decorating is a skill I hugely admire. Of course anyone can decorate a sugar cookie, but I'm talking the beautiful smooth, shiny, detailed cookies you see in magazines :) I'm steadily improving with each holiday season, and I found a cookie and icing recipe that is a game changer! The cookies have an amazing almond flavor, and the icing consistency is perfect for spreading and getting a smooth surface, but not dripping off the edge of the cookie, Here are the recipes in case you're interested: icing and cookies.
