Amazing Sugar Cookies – One dough 3 ways

Are you excited for this upcoming season?

I know my girls are really looking forward to winter break, spending time with family, parties, and most of all, the baking that will be happening in my kitchen throughout December.

If you’re making Holiday cookies like me, I got the recipe for you.

It comes out perfect every time and you can choose how you want to present them, imagine all the possibilities.

I also rolled the log in sprinkles to give it a nice festive look.

Every year I invite my daughters friends over for a cool cookie decorating party. I pull out a table and place all the baked cookies.

All they have to do is glaze them and top them with their favorite toppings.
