I've been on a decorated cookie kick where I frost cutout sugar cookies with melted chocolate.
Another positive to frosting with melted chocolate is fewer dishes to wash, chocolate dries faster, and it's a great way to use up chocolate and sprinkles, which I have A LOT. That is a trifecta I want in my life!
On a tastier note, these cookies satisfy tastebuds for sugar cookie lovers, chocolate lovers, and sprinkles lovers. That's a trifecta of lovers. Doesn't everyone fit into at least one of those categories, if not all three? 😜
Patriotic Star Sugar Cookies are the perfect, fun, and festive cookies for your Memorial Day weekend, your 4th of July celebration, or your Labor Day observance.
These star cutout sugar cookies offer a unique twist on decorated cookies, are easy for the kiddos (and you), and have a delish flavor combo that everyone will enjoy. ❤️
Another great thing about these delightful cookies, is you don't have to get all fancy pants with the sugar cookie dough. You can keep it easy-breezy and use a sugar cookie mix; I am extremely partial to Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix. I love it!
Celebrate the red, white, and blue with Patriotic Star Sugar Cookies, your stomach will thank you!!
