Frosted Sugar Cookies

Nothing gets eaten up faster than a frosted cookie at a tailgate party!  It’s a fact.  Proven by me.  Kids love frosted sugar cookies!!  Put them out at a football tailgate party and you’ll be the hit of the tailgate!

Frosted Sugar CookiesI have a confession.  I hate making decorated cookies.  I don’t have the patience to fuss.  But you know what you don’t really need to decorate these, just frost them and add a few sprinkles and you are good to go!  Since it’s Grandville’s Homecoming this weekend I chose to go way out of my comfort zone and decorate these cookies; all in the name of Bulldog Pride!!   I know their not purdy, but they got gobbled up so fast I don’t think anyone even noticed that I painstakingly decorated {can you say finger cramp?} them.


OXO Cookies for Kid's CancerSeptember is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and for every cookie recipe posted by a blogger the OXO company is donating $100 dollars to Cookies for Kids Cancer. Every year OXO champions the Good Cookie  Campaign for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, all the donations go to the wonderful charity that helps fund pediatric cancer research.


OXO Cookies for Kids Cancer Pediatric cancer is a cause near and dear to my heart.  When I was 14 I lost a dear friend to leukemia and at the same age my daughter also lost a friend to cancer last year.  It was like reliving my loss all over again, seeing her mourn the loss of her friend.  If you’d like to join in and Bake a Difference for kids, look for specially marked Oxo Baking Tools  and Oxo will donate 25 cents of every purchase to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. I personally love my OXO measuring cups and spoons!  You can also spread the word via social media by using the hashtag #OxoGoodCookies

Frosted Sugar CookiesCookies for kids cancer was founded by two OXOnians (OXO employees) inspired by there 2 years old son’s battle with cancer.  It provides inspiration, ideas, and support for people everywhere to help fight pediatric cancer.  Since the beginning, OXOniaons have pledged their time and energy by baking cookies and hosting bake sales with proceeds match by our parent company.  This year, OXO will donate up to $100,000 to support this cause!  This fall look for specially marked OXO products bearing the cookies for kids cancer logo.  A portion of the proceeds of each will benefit this worthy cause!!


Frosted Sugar CookiesI need to confess that sometimes I………….{whisper} buy white frosting.   You heard me.  I buy it in the cute little tubs.  It’s so much easier, when I’m in a hurry.  There it’s out.  I’ma cornercutter…frostingbuyer.

    This is not on topic exactly but I went to a food blogging conference over the weekend and one of the presentations was an hour of scolding for every time we didn’t eat organic or bought something that traveled more than 25 miles. I thought about my life as a single working mother with a boy who played football, did competitive skating (yes, all 220 lbs of him) and my daughter was in everything. I was lucky they got fed at all some nights. I would have bought tub frosting too and by gosh they’d better like it.

    Nice cookies. 🙂

      YEAH! you went to a blogging conference! How fun….but bummer about the scolding, that is not fun. Hope the rest of the time was well spent. My kids like “bought” frosting better too! I am not a frosting person, so I’d rather just buy it than mess with making it. But once in a while I do make it…. ;D and lick my fingers!

    I’m so sorry for your loss and for your daughter’s. There really isn’t anyone cancer hasn’t touched, at least indirectly. I found you by searching #OXOGoodCookie since I just posted my own decorated cookies. What a coincidence that you chose to go out of your comfort zone with your cookies–I said almost the same thing in my post! I love that big round cutter, because if you’re gonna have a cookie, you may as well *really* have a cookie! 🙂
