Baby Shower Cookies: Sugar Cookies Recipe

Hello blog buddies! Today I am sharing with you what I have done recently... I baked these cute sugar cookies yesterday to serve during our baby visits.. we are not going to have a baby shower since its not a tradition here in Sweden, but instead it will be small family and friends gatherings every now and then... I thought it would be nice to bake something special for the event.

I wanted to do more things aside to these cookies but unfortunately my energy at the moment barely passes me through the days basic tasks. I might bake something else the coming days, who knows! 

So below you can see the preparation method in photos and the recipe at the end. I hope you enjoy it and can make use of this recipe for other occasions as well in a different shape or style. 


These Sugar Cookies are perfect! Both soft and crisp and the the flavor is wonderful! Paired with an incredible frosting, this will quickly become your go-to sugar cookie recipe!
