Amish Sugar Cookies

Amish Sugar Cookies

Am I alone in saying that I love to watch the Disney TV movies?  Lemonade Mouth is on right now and the girls have been in bed for about 30 minutes but I can’t turn it off….and I will probably be singing “Determinate” for the next week.   I don’t remember movies like this when I was a Tween….maybe the ABC After School specials, but they didn’t have the music and dancing that these movies have. They’re just fun is all.  Camp Rock, Teen Beach Movie, High School Musical….

Anywhooo…lets move on to cookies, shall we?

Don’t let the electric blue buttercream frosting  fool you.  These sugar cookies need no frosting or icing.  They are melt in your mouth delicious and my favorite sugar cookies I have ever made.  You will love them, too!

Now don’t get me wrong.  There is nothing wrong with adding electric blue buttercream frosting to these, but they just taste so good on their own.  Taylor was adamant about frosting cookies bright blue so we did!

  1. Haha! I remember loving TV Disney movies when I was a tween (I think they were kind of a new thing then). But I haven’t watched them in years! You just brought back some memories though. 🙂

  2. Personally, I like the electric blue icing. It makes the cookies seem like a party waiting to happen.

  3. I love cookies like these. Your cookies look really yummy!
