Alphabet Sugar Cookies

I'm always amazed at the creativity that goes into decorating sugar cookies. I just want to be able to snap my fingers and be THAT good! If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out Bake at 350. The cookies decorated by Bridget, are absolutely out of this world! So inspiring, that I actually put my foot down and said to myself, I'm going to try cookie decorating.

I had a little tiff with my mamma about decorating them. Being the health nut that she is, to say she was shocked at the amount of sugar that was put into these cookies, would be an understatement.

And knowing that I'm adding more sugar with the icing, she was all, "You know, people are starting to stay away from sugar and colouring. They know it's not healthy..blah.." She actually didn't say blah, that's just what I heard. I think i replied with some excuse saying that they're not just for eating, but for looking at as well.. haha.. I don't know if that made any sort of difference.. but she eventually left me alone to finish decorating. I'm hoping during that whole spiel you weren't thinking.. "I can't believe she still lives with her parents." Not ashamed to say that, YES I do! Living away from home is expensive! Its either I choose between new cake decorating supplies or rent. Hmm.. I think the choice is obvious! :P

Here are the results. They're simple, Alphabet Sugar cookies.
