What is your favorite store bought icing to use on sugar cookies?


6 Courtney November 29, 2011 at 2:54 pm

I LOVE the Betty Crocker Cookie Icing – it fills in the gaps and hardens to look smooth like in the pictures above. It’s great!

As if I needed any more reasons to indulge! :-)

They all look deee-lish!

My mouth is watering! I love me some holiday sweets! Those cookie drops look good…are those the ones that you put a cookie in a cupcake? Or just bake the cookie in a muffin tin?

Cookies are my favorite and I recently made some Pumpkin Spiced and Sprinkled Cookies that were very holiday-ey.

Also made some yummy Sugar and Spice and Everything Awesome cookies

Another crowd pleaser is Lemon Doodle Cookies (this post has a link to even MORE cookies)

Thanks for sharing this recipe round-up!

This page is getting bookmarked for sure! :-)

I haven’t visited your blog in awhile and Im soo glad today is the day I did!!! The Nutella Chocolate Cookies and Chocolate Chip Cups with Almond Frosting are getting added to my list of cookies to make this year! Thank You!


27 Marty November 29, 2011 at 4:22 pm

My favorite cookie recipe is “White Chocolate Almond Oatmeal Cookies”
I used a recipe I found online and had to sub out ingredients because I didn’t have them and the results were amazing. I’ve now made them at least a dozen times for different occasions. Although I would choose dark chocolate over white any day of the week, these are my weakness!!

Wow, they definitely do sound delicious!


29 Shannon November 29, 2011 at 5:01 pm

You’re torturing me with these pictures! They all look so good. I am definitely emailing my mother the link to this post, and we’ll do some serious baking for Christmas.

SN- I printed your Turkey & Veggie Soup and guess what?!? We’re having that for dinner sometime next week (probably Monday night)! EEEeeeeeeeeekkk. (Sorry- it looked so good). Thank you for sharing. I’ll let you know how much my family liked it.

Yummm!! Those all look incredible! I’m so excited to start getting some baked goods in the mail, from the cookie swap!

A recipe I made not too long ago was this one for peanut butter cookies. I give all the credit to Jessica from “How Sweet it is.” It’s completely her recipe, and I love her for sharing it! :)

45 Lena @Fit on the Rocks November 29, 2011 at 9:17 pm

I’ve tried something very similar to those Oreo truffles, and they were soooooo good. I’m going to try your recipe and see if it’s similar. Either way, I’m sure it’s going to taste awesome!

Okay that’s not even fair!! Too many choices! You’re going to make me the hero of my church’s young adults annual cookie exchange! That is, if I decide which type of cookie to make in time to make it to the party! ;)
