The Greatest Sugar Cookie: Cookie 8

To practice "cake" decorating, which was what we were supposed to be doing for homeschool art a couple weeks ago, we decorated sugar cookie eggs last night.  My frosting didn't turn out the right consistency  for frosting with (apparently I need to work on my ability to make a good frosting), but we gave it a shot anyway.

 Recipe from Your Homebased Mom here
(The purple frosting is her glaze recipe, the other colors are her frosting recipe.)

Review: Basically, I feel like all the sugar cookie recipes I've tried, except the first one, have been pretty good.  This wasn't fabulous, but it was a good sugar cookie.  It needs to chill for four hours, but luckily I noticed that in the recipe and planned ahead (this isn't always the case with me and previewing a recipe).  I told Jed I thought these were good, but not great.  He argued that they were very tasty.  The kids loved them.

I think you really need to make all of the recipes at the same time in order to decide which is the best.

Think of what a fun day that would be!

P.S. How do you not weigh 300 lbs? Honestly?
