Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing

Okay. Allow me to let you in on a little known fact……….

My loved ones have the CUTEST kids. True story.

Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing

And they’re not just adorable. These kids are truly so bright, intelligent, and loving. C’mon now!

So when my dear friends J and C were celebrating their daughter Emma’s 1st birthday, I jumped at the chance to show my little Emma how much I love her!

Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing

For her Plaza Sésamo themed party, I made these bright sugar cookies with royal icing for one of her party favors.

For the cookie dough, I turned to Martha Stewart’s recipe for the Ideal Sugar Cookies and Annie Eat’s Royal Icing Recipe. Both are easy to follow with nice results and I was quite pleased with how the colors popped. And for those who need a little help with flooding cookies, check out Annie’s tutorial here It’s fantastic with step by step photos.

I hope you had a wonderful birthday Emma! Tia loves you! 🙂
