Cookie Decorating Party

Who doesnt love cookies? We sure do, and after our successful gingerbread making, I thought it would be alot of fun to have some friends over to make some cookies! Everyone was invited to bring their favorite sprinkles, their rolling pin, and come to ready to play!

I set the table with a gingerbread house, and small cookie sheets for each guest. Around the gingerbread house, I spread out the sprinkles in some vintage tart tins that were my grandma’s. I also made a bunting banner that said Bakery and some pretty printable for my frames. To add some pizazz to the decor, I took some ribbon and strung some muffin cups on them. I hung these on the ceiling! They were super cute!

The night before the party, I made some sugar cookie dough using a recipe from my mom’s neighbor! These were amazing! The dough was soft enough for the kids to roll themselves, but firm enough to pick up. They weren’t too sticky to roll and held up just beautifully! Another thing I did that I think made thing really great was to roll the dough in powdered sugar instead of flour. It seemed to help avoid that toughness that the dough gets after being rolled, and re-rolled, and re-rolled! The kids loved it and after rolling their dough, they cut out the cookies and placed them on their trays. Then it was time for the fun part~ Decorating the cookies! The kids were able to pick out the sprinkles they wanted and added them to the cut outs! Finally it was time to bake and eat! 🙂 Yummy!

Now I know you are just dying to have the recipe for the cookies so you can have your own party at home! It really is the best one I have ever tried! Here it is!
Sugar Cookies
(Recipe from my mom’s neighbor)
1-8oz. Block of Cream Cheese
3/4 cup Butter Softened
1 cup Powdered Sugar
2 1/4 cup of Flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
Cream together Cream Cheese, Butter, and Powdered Sugar in mixing bowl until blended. Add the flour and baking soda to butter mixture and blend! Cover and chill for 15-20 minutes (or overnight in my case). Take chilled dough and roll out to 1/4 in thickness on a powdered sugared surface. Place cut out cookies on a greased tray and bake at 350 degrees for 7-8 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
