OMG!! im from the uk and we dont really have a big cookie culture and i had never ate iced sugar cookies before, just the oatmeal drop type so i made my first batch from the Confetti book and they are AMAZING!! the texture, taste, crunch, smell and they are so easy to cut out with a cardboard template!! im converted! unfortunately my piping skills are heinous!! i made hearts, shoes, handbag and tiered cake shapes and they are for my eyes and belly only!! they look like a child did them!!

my icing for flooding was too thick, i was lazy and didnt mix the colours in both consistencies so the outlines were a different colour (never again!!) and generally they looked awful but they tasted divine and i have an extra batch of dough in the freezer to practice on over christmas.

Im definitly a cookie convert, just have to learn how to pipe!!

Cathy24, the link on how to decorate cookies is great. I decorated my first cookies last week and it helped me so much! I haven't posted any pictures yet, but I will soon.

I'm so glad!

Cookies are wonderful, you can make them and freeze them to have whenever you want them. Plain or fancy; fruity or nutty or chocolate or spicy; crispy or chewy or soft or crumbly; drops or bars or shapes; large or small or gigantic; smooth icing or piped ruffles or dipped or sugar-sprinkled or drizzled...

Aaaaahhhh, life is good!
