Cookie Party!

So EVERY single year my sister and I get together and invite friends over for cookie decorating and it is a blast.  I will leave the recipe I used for the cut-out sugar cookies at the bottom, it worked well but I think I will still be on the hunt for a recipe that has a little more of that flakey vegan buttery goodness.  Though there were some RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING cookies the winner of this years most awesome cookie goes to my favorite sister in the world, check it out!
MEATWAD!  I know this is a vegan blog but Meatwad is fricken hilarious and it is cookie art at it's best, good job sis!  Here are some more pics of our fun day:
A group shot of Wendy's back, Laura, my big sis and my lover, yeah he's sexy and he's vegan and he decorates cookies and he's mine bitches!  Anyways, enough of me being a psycho jealous gf and back to the cookies. As you can see in this pic my sister has the most redick collection of cookie sprinkles known to man and as you can see in the next picture she also has a great cookie cutter collection.
Here are a couple of close ups so you can better see the awesomness:
Here is Laura's plate of cookies which this picture totally does not do justice to but you can see this beezie has gots skills...
And watch out for Kenny's sequin shirt and glitter pants wearin lover boy of a gingerbread man
I made vegan cut-out cookies and vegan icing for me but other people that came over brought non-vegan cookies and a few non-vegan decorations.  Here are the recipes I used for the cookies and icing:

Vegan Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

    In a medium sized bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon set aside.
  2. 2

  4. 4
    Start preheating oven to 350 Fahrenheit.

Simple Cookie Decorating Icing

1 cups powdered sugar for every color of icing you would like
milk alternative
food coloring

1. Place powder sugar in small bowl or cup and add milk alternative one tablespoon at a time until desired consistency.  If it is too thick add more "milk" and if it is too watery add more powder sugar.  Then add food coloring of your choice to sugar and mix and you are ready to go.  

Note:  This shit is not as easy as it looks, like I said we have been doing this EVERY year since as far back as I can remember so were pretty much professionals.  When you venture off into cookie decorating heaven just remember to relax and think outside of the cookie cutter and you will be fine.
