Cooking With Kids: Cookie Ornaments #LMDConnector

Nothing beats a good old fashioned sugar cookie. My kids and I love to bake and so when we were asked to pick a recipe from the Life Made Delicious web site it wasn’t too hard to settle on something sweet for a treat at this time of year. We found ornament sugar cookies and I made them easily with my kids as a holiday treat.

Start with a package of these sugar cookies and add what they tell you to on the package. If you don’t have the package itself, then you can easily duplicate from the Life Made Delicious site. Now, admittedly ours look a little different than the perfect specimens on the site here, but we had fun, as usual, in the kitchen and let me tell you these were outrageously good.
The hardest part of these cookies was attaching the candy cane hooks and breaking the candy canes just right to get the hooks to use. The Life Made Delicious site suggest breaking them in the package with scissors. They are kind of hard to break otherwise and they crumble easily. So 8-10 minutes of baking in, you pull the treats out and insert the candy cane hook in the top. Then return to oven to cook. Let cool and ice with your own icing. I make mine with icing sugar, margarine and hot water. Then decorate as you wish. These are durable enough to hang, if they last that long. Also we discovered these little candy cane hangers are just right for kid’s tiny chubby fingers.
