Patriotic Sugar Cookies


Today it was time to bake the cookies!
Flags..bunting..stars..hearts.. houses..trucks and even chickens got the red white and blue icing today..

I made 2 double batches of the Mrs. Fields sugar cookie recipe and this is the amount that was made.. I use royal icing to decorate. I found out after I went to the store for the red and blue food coloring that I didn't have any pastry bags... So I knew I had seen someone decorate cookies using zip locs bags and just cutting the tip a little bit. So , that is what I did.. Loaded up zip loc bags and decorated..
I used the truck cookie cutter with the tree in back and cut the tip of the tree off a little and made the tree into a flag .. they look pretty cute :) I love the little buntings.. those are just a circle cutter then cut in half..
Hope you are having a great weekend!
