Easy Rolled Sugar Cookies

These cookies are perfect for the beginner sugar cookier. They are glazed, but not delicately so, and covered in the all-important sprinkles!

I was throwing them together Monday morning for a little BBQ at a friend’s house, so I didn’t have a lot of time (or energy) to spend on them.

ALSO, I know I am getting annoying with this, but I have a new sugar cookie recipe. I have been using this one for a while now, and it’s absolutely perfect. I linked it up here and changed the links on my other posts.

I’m also going to actually share my “recipe” for my icing. I finally took the time to measure how much of each ingredient it takes to make it the perfect consistency… rather than just guessing every time.

Basic Sugar Cookie Recipe

Basic Icing Recipe

For these easy cookies, I rolled the cookies extra thick with my 1/4″ dowels. I chose to do stars because it was Memorial Day, but any basic shape will do.

Spread the cookies out on a wire rack and set it on top of another pan or a piece of waxed paper.

Mix up your icing and put into a squeeze bottle or zip-top baggie with the corner cut.  Drizzle haphazardly across the cookie in the same back-and-forth direction. I just used white icing for simplicity, but colored icing, or multiple colors drizzled together would look super cute!

It doesn’t matter if it’s messy looking because we’re going to throw sprinkles on top.

Here is a shot of my beautiful icing and sprinkle party after-math. I wish it was acceptable and appropriate to lick the pan.

The cookies dried well enough in just a couple hours and were ready for our Memorial Day BBQ.

These exact cookies would obviously be perfect for 4th of July too.. but now I am thinking Halloween or Christmas or any other holiday these could be cut with a basic shape and different color combos!
