Easy to make sugar cookies are perfect for cutouts. Cut into carrot shapes and decorate and fill a paper bag cut into a cute bunny with a cotton tale and it makes a perfect gift for anyone.
Easter is just around the corner and one of our favorite activities to do at our house it to make and decorate sugar cookies. This year we found an adorable carrot cookie cutter and decided we would make the Easter Bunny some carrots. We also thought these would be a fun gift for neighbors and friends so we cut out some ears on a paper bag, glued a cotton ball to the back and filled the bag with cookies. It really is a fun, easy gift.
I love this sugar cookie recipe for cut outs. It is my go-to recipe.
Make sure you refrigerate the dough for at least two hours to get the best results. Also, when decorating with the frosting, I just put the frosting in a plastic baggie, clip off the corner and pipe onto the cookie. Do the outline first and then fill the center after the outline is dried.
I hope you enjoy these cookies and have fun sharing them with others.
