I dabbled with some fondant and made some cookies, but frosted them in a different, easier way. In about 2 hours I had 36 poinsettias and 36 Christmas Trees baked, frosted, and my kitchen cleaned. It worked out well and was a great way to make my way back in. These are my regular sugar cookies with buttercream frosting. I made them to hand out to my awesome, amazing neighbors all over my neighborhood. I packaged up 10 little boxes of cookies and gave them out. These are some of my favorite cookies and I just love them with the buttercream. If only they were a bit more sturdy and could be wrapped and given out as favors!
I forgot how much I like baking until I was rolling out my dough and flour was, inevitably, all over me! The oven was heating and it was a cool night, so it felt nice and the house smelled like warm sugar cookies.
