From the Oven: Sugar Cookies

I wanted to practice making sugar cookies with royal icing sugar decoration for El's incoming first year birthday. With cookie cutter bought from Crate and Barrel and a recipe from Martha Steward's book, I was ready to go only to find out that the end result was not what I imagined it to be. Well, as an excuse, that was my first attempt. I guess because I didn't put the shaped dough in the fridge long enough so mine didn't hold the shape very well in the oven. The recipe says to leave the shaped dough in the fridge minimum for two hours, and I only did it for 15 minutes :D oh well... 

From the Oven: Double-Chocolate Brownie Cookies

This is another fail-proof dessert. Super easy to make and you can experiment with the cookie dough. Put in your preferred ingredients to the base mixture; marshmallow, walnuts, dried fruits... go creative. I added dried cranberry, sunflower seeds and walnuts, instant hit :D 

The cookies surprisingly weren't overly sweet considering a few more spoonful of chocolate I added to the recipe haha.
