When you are decorating cookies, remember to let the kids be creative. I really enjoy decorating cookies, but when I decorate cookies with the kids, I keep it simple. I make the Buttercream Frosting for my younger children to use. It is simple to make. It tastes great and it is easy to use. They use different colored sprinkles to decorate the cookies, which I have learned is a lot more fun for them than using different colored icing. I save the Royal Icing, that requires a steady hand and time to dry, for the older children and myself. Whether you choose the Buttercream Frosting or the Royal Icing, the cookies will turn out great. Have fun, keep it simple, and take lots of pictures when baking these Cut Out Butter Cookies.
