My sister requested frosted sugar cookies in addition to a cake for a birthday party she is going to today. I must thank her because it allowed me the opportunity to use a recipe from Annie's Eats (http://annies-eats.net/2011/07/18/soft-frosted-sugar-cookies/) The frosting is thinner than the frosted cookies you find at the grocery store but it is perfect. You don't need a lot of frosting for this cookie so it's a great pairing.
I doubled the batch from the recipe and almost had enough frosting from the single batch listed on the recipe. I only had to make a tiny bit extra. I ended up getting roughing 60 cookies by doubling the recipe. My sister wanted 4 dozen and I took the remaining in to work for my good friend's birthday. I went with yellow for the frosting because it's been rather gloomy this past week with rain and I figured yellow would remind everyone of sunshine! Silly I know but I wanted to use a color that would cheer people up!
