How to Make American Flag Heart Decorated Sugar Cookies

There was a time, not all that long ago, when I used to bake a decorate sugar cookies almost every day. That was about 10 years ago when I ran a small home based cookie business called Kudos Kookies. Notice anything familiar about the name? 😉

Now I only bake and decorate sugar cookies when I’m really in the mood, and when there is a special occasion. For me, Memorial Day and the 4th of July are just the types of special occasions which call for patriotic cookies. Especially when they’re these fun American Flag Heart Decorated Sugar Cookies.

Best Ever Santa’s Favorite Sugar Cookies

When we got married, and Mark and I started our own family, there were certain traditions I wanted to continue from when I was a little girl and hopefully pass along to our two boys. These cookies were one of the things I incorporated throughout the years to fondly rekindle my joyous Christmas memories.

I am happy to report that our boys (now grown) feel exactly the same way about these cookies as I did, and still do to this day.  Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without Santa’s Favorite Sugar Cookies.

Easy To Make Pumpkin Shaped Sugar Cookies For Thanksgiving

Every year for Christmas it’s tradition for me to make my family’s favorite sugar cookie. I’ve shared the recipe in the past (way back in 2010) and dubbed it “Santa’s Favorite Cookie.”

This year, I decided to mix things up a little so I used the same recipe (basically), and made pumpkin shaped sugar cookies for my family as a special surprise treat they didn’t see coming! Needless to say, the cookies were gobbled up quickly. 🙂

With my poor old feet begging me to sit, I decided to break out the paint brushes and try something new. I began painting my iced cookies with a mixture of food coloring and water.

To my knowledge, it’s something that had not been seen much in the cookie world at that time. This brainstorm worked in two ways: It satisfied my long lost desire to get back to painting (my first passion), and it stops my dogs from barking (i.e. my feet). Not my real dogs, they bark all the time. LOL.
