Shaped Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing

Happy Monday, everyone! We had more ice and snow last weekend. It made everything look beautiful, but it made everything slick and slippery. Very glad it’s all over with. Crossing my fingers that Spring will hurry up!

Today I want to share with you some cookies I made for our Girls’ Day Tea Party. I made them into hearts, but you can make them into any shape. 🙂
