Well, here is some pictures of the kids sugar cookies they made. Let's just say I have a huge cleaning project ahead of me. haha The kids had flour all over the clothes and faces and sprinkles in the floor. They had fun...
Here is the recipe I used for the Sugar Cookies and Sugar Cookie Frosting. I did add some butter to my frosting to change to the taste of it slightly.
