I’ve never been one to think decorated sugar cookies were too complicated or time-consuming.  None of the steps take all that long and anyway, they are fun to make!  But for those that need a quick, low maintenance sugar cookie, look no further.  These are even easier than drop cookies because you just press the dough into a pan, bake, frost, slice and serve.  You get the taste of a sugar cookie without all the fuss.  This makes a huge quantity of cookies (depending of course on what size you cut them).  I did think they were a little lacking in flavor as written, but the recipe is a great base for adding whatever flavoring suits your taste.  Next time I’ll definitely add lemon zest and vanilla bean and have indicated this below, but orange or almond extract would also be wonderful.  Same goes for the frosting – this one is fine, but feel free to use your favorite.  Whatever floats your boat!

Also, a quick announcement – the winner of the Chocomize giveaway is…….
