Sugar Cookie Sprinkles

Last December I posted about my childhood memories of baking sugar cookies with my mom.  You can see the “star” doodle I created for this previous post, here.

We added lots of candy sprinkles to the cut-out sugar cookies we made.  The more sugar…uh, I mean, color the better!!  Right?!

I tried to create the candy sprinkles in this handmade stamp which looks like it was dipped into frosting!  Lol!  🙂  Honestly, it was only acrylic paint!

I then cut simple shapes (using stencils) that look a little like cookie dough to me (gelli-printed papers):

And added my colored “candy sprinkles” stamp to them with acrylic paint with a little glitter on top:

I think this would be a fun project to do with children!  And of course, you need REAL sugar cookies to enjoy while making these paper ones!

Cheers!!  🙂

P.S.  Eileen McKenna at My Creative Resolution has created a daily art prompt for the countdown to Christmas.  I hope you join in the fun!  I like that ALL art mediums are welcome… Today’s prompt is Cookies.  Use hashtag #adventmcr when posting.

Sugar Cookies

I completed this doodle recently using a stencil:

Star Doodle

It reminded me of the cut-out sugar cookies I used to make with my mom when I was a child.  It seems like yesterday…

We rolled out the sweet, chilled dough onto a floured cutting board.  Then selected the shapes:  a star, bell, tree, camel or angel.  Of course, we would have to sneak a taste of the raw dough!

After cutting the dough into shapes, we carefully laid them onto the cookie sheet.  We added colored sprinkles in green and red before popping the pan into the oven and setting the timer on the stove.

When the buzzer rang, we would excitedly remove the warm cookies from the oven and transfer them to a rack so they would cool.

The baked cookies melted in your mouth!  And they were perfect with a glass of milk…

Do you remember baking holiday cookies with your mom or grandma?  I’d love to hear about it!

Happy Baking!  🙂
