Sugar Cookies

Today we are going to start our second week for Mega Blogging Marathon with Baking theme. Last week my sub- theme was cupcakes and now this week I am going to treat with my cookie recipes. For the first day my recipe is a classic sugar cookies, I made a small change with this popular recipe. I made them with out eggs since the classic sugar cookies are made with eggs. Sugar cookies are normally decorated with frosting or sprinkles or you can decorate with royal icing and sprinkle with some colored sprinkles. You can also give different shapes with cookie cutter. But I gave them a simple round shape and kept them plain, to enjoy them with my cup of green tea
