Hello Spring Cookies!

Remember the scene in Sex and the City where Carrie sees some Manolo Blahniks in a store window and cooes "Hello, Lover" to them? Well that's how I felt when I had a blissful hour of making these spring sugar cookies. It's been awhile since I dusted off my pastry bags and tips and was it lovely!

This time I was smart...I baked the sugar cookies in advance and froze them! Then I let them thaw for a day and did the part I love the most...decorating!!

I wanted to use different amounts of the royal icing frosting because not everyone wants a cookie covered in frosting. Plus this recipe has a great flavor so no need to cover up with frosting.

Cheerful sunflowers

Modern, minimal daisies

Happy Spring!
