Why These are the Best Cookie Designs
I think that decorating sugar cookies should be fun and stress-free.
Of all the design inspiration out there, I think these are the best Halloween sugar cookie design ideas because:
- Simple Cookie Cutter Shapes: Each design can be recreated with a basic cutter shape like a pumpkin or ghost. There's even a circle and square cutter option! No specialty cutters required.
- Just 2 Accent Colors: When I decorate sugar cookies, I like to keep things easy. There are so many elegant cookie platters that only require a batch of white icing and 2 accent colors. All of these designs will work perfectly for that.
- Just Add Sprinkles: If your color-loving heart just can't handle the 2 accent color rule, these designs would be extra adorable with sprinkled accents.
