Winter Cookie Bouquet – Say it with Cookies

Decorated Sugar Cookies made into a cookie buquet

Soft, with a slightly crunchy exterior these sugar cookies are delicious!  I made these cookies with my new Sugar Cookie recipe which is now my favorite.  If you are not a fan of almond you can swap it out and just use all vanilla extract.  I don’t use the recipe for the frosting, just the sugar cookies.  I use Royal Icing for decorating.

This is the first cookie bouquet I’ve used with tissue paper … and I like it!  My friend liked her cookie bouquet … and purple is her favorite color.  Mix up a batch today, get your decorating tools out and make a friend smile!
