Update: Yesterday I baked up a batch of Elle’s White Sugar Cookies recipe. The cookies, in comparison to my current favorites are crisper and thinner. They have a well-developed almond flavor and a melt-in-your-mouth sweetness. For a crisp cookie, they’re fantastic (this coming from a soft-cookie girl). The stiff texture and crisp crust make these a breeze to decorate, as they don’t absorb the flooded icing at all. Bake a batch, hit the post office, and brighten someone’s day by sending a care package full of these cookies.
*Decorating inspiration came from My Sweet and Saucy. Check out her amazing cookie and cake designs, as well as wedding inspiration photos. I love her work because it’s something that anyone with the right tools and enough patience can replicate (except for the gorgeous sugar flowers, perhaps.)
