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 July...be safe!
