Fondant Flamingo Sugar Cookies

19 Flares 19 Flares ×


 
I’ve always been obsessed with making sugar cookies. We’re talking all the way back to the 90s when I would bake with my mom! It’s taken me the longest time to find the perfect sugar cookie that would hold its shape and not spread out like a pancake on the pan. Isn’t that the worst?! Don’t worry, I have a recipe for you at the end of this post! ;)
 

 
As we’re in full swing of summer mode, I knew our BFFF content calendar would not be complete without a post incorporating flamingos. Don’t worry though, I will probably be back this fall with a post about flamingos again too, as last Halloween I made a flamingo pumpkin – true story!!!
 

 
Instead of using royal icing to decorate the tops of cookies, I have really been loving the clean look of using fondant lately! I always use a cookie cutter when cutting the shape. Easy is how I roll these days, so I promise it’s not rocket science over here! ;)
