I love the way super cute sugar cookies can instantly invoke holiday cheer ... but I hate to make them. The whole rolling and chilling of the dough, getting the proper icing consistency, etc. It always seems to be much more effort (and trouble) than it's ever worth.
So I'm thinking about making a major attitude shift and conquering the sugar cookie monkey that's been on my back. In my quest for ideas and inspiration, I found a shop in Michigan (Knead a Cookie?) that makes absolutely adorable sugar cookies. Not only are the cuts original and precise, but the icing colors are amazingly vibrant.
