4th of July Cookies!

I wanted to do something really simple for the 4th of July - these cookies are easily packaged and are portable for taking to your celebrations.  I adore cupcakes, but transporting them is not always easy, and the frosting can start to melt in the July heat.

I got this amazing sugar cookie recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction, and slightly altered it.  The cookies came out so moist and tender with a tiny bit of crunch.  Absolute heaven.

Instead of mixing the red, white, and blue sprinkles in the dough like she did, I just sprinkled them on top of the cookies before putting them in the oven.  I also added two minutes to the baking time, but perhaps my oven is finicky.

Aren't they cute? 

FYI - I made the circle around the plate out of cupcake wrappers - so adorable!  This type of wrapper goes around the cupcake when it comes out of the oven, and I got them here:  Bella Cupcake Couture.

Hope you have a fabulous 4th of safe!
