Beginners Guide to Cookie Decorating

Christmas is a time for family, friends and baking cookies for everyone you know. We all have our favorite cookie recipes that have been passed down by our families and friends. I know you have found amazing recipes on Pinterest. Decorating sugar cookies is a little more complicated than baking up a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Don’t get me wrong, chocolate chip cookies are delicious but, aren’t as pretty as decorated sugar cookies. When I began making cookies, I searched the web high and low looking for some kind of beginners guide to cookie decorating but I never found one.

Beginners-Guide-to-Cookie-DecoratingI wanted to make a guide for those looking for tips and trick that will help take some of the mystery out of making cookies. I have gathered several posts that I’ve made over the last two years and put them all in one place for you. This list will show you everything from how to roll out sugar cookie dough to how to fix mistakes when decorating cookies. I hope you find something that will help answer your questions.
