I tried. I really tried to make cut out sugar cookies. The problem is that I was born without the "cut out cookie" gene. Seriously, I have never been good at sugar cookies. I uaually just buy the cookie dough in a tube at the store and roll it out. It usually burns. Today I made a much raved about recipe from online. But they forgot to mention that even if it's a great recipe, if you don't have "the gene" you will fail. And I did. Mostly. The dough was good. I refrigerated it all morning and went to roll it out. No luck. It stuck to everything. I tried again with a little more flower, and it still stuck. That's when I gave up ad dropped them right from the counter on to the pan. the taste good and we made the frosting that you paint on. The kids are having a ball and Linden is mostly cooperating.

I am missing the cookie rolling gene as well. I have had anxiety attacks over rolling sugar cookies. I am also totally inept, but now I use a butter cookie recipe instead and it rolls out super easy. You don't even have to refrigerate it. I will have to pass it along. My kids never eat sugar cookies but we do love to paint them.

I've never "painted" sugar cookies. What do you use? Looks like something we would enjoy around here. Even if we have to buy the dough.

Sugar cookies are tricky. Especially rolling them out but the kids will never mind burnt cookies if they get to eat plenty of dough and icing!
