Skinny Tips: Clever Cookie Design

Do you want to take your simple sugar cookies up a notch?! We do! Which is why we had to share this simple and beautiful idea for giving a simple sugar cookie a great design… just use the bottom of your glasses! We don’t about you, but we have a few drinking classes in our cupboard that would be perfect to use as a cookie design. Or, if you don’t have these types of glasses you can make a quick trip to the flea market and pick some up… and then serve milk out of them to go with the cookies!  These adorable designs resemble snowflakes and are perfect for a winter cookie treat! Take a look …
