SMS - Piggy Sugar Cookies

The Sugar Cookies chosen by Nina of Nina’s Cupcakes for Sweet Melissa Sunday was a big hit. We had fun making little piggy sugar cookies but since we are also getting ready to hike at Tiger Mountain this morning ( in Washington state - part of the Northwest is not frozen or under snow), I am going to be kind of quick.
In my house we collect cookie cutters and have oodles of them but we decided to go with only one design. The cookie dough was delicious and a little sticky while rolling out. I had trouble getting my pieces of cookie dough off of the board, even using a pastry scraper as a spatula.

The flavor was wonderful with the lemon zest added and this is one of our little piggies decorated. The royal icing was a little messy but fun. Thank you Nina for a wonderful choice! To get the recipe for this week, go to Nina's blog and also see what great things she did with her cookie dough. Don't forget to check out the other Sweet Melissa Sunday bakers here to see everyone's artistic side. Happy Baking and Happy Sunday Everyone!

Thanks for baking with me this week! These piggy sugar cookies are just so adorable! I hope you're having fun hiking. I know my friends went to Tahoe this weekend and they were saying how it was snowing, but they should be safe in coming back from Tahoe, but we shall see!

I l-o-v-e your sugar cookies. My mom would go nuts over that cookies cutter, she loves pigs! How fun!
I am not a decorator so mine came out funny looking..but they were sure yummy. I ate way to many and am paying for it today!
Have a great hike with your family. That sounds so fun.

Shandy, how was your hiking adventure? Are you back yet? I hope you had fun!!

Glad to hear you enjoyed your hiking trip. It was nice of you to bring cookies :o) You make instant friends when you share treats, ha ha. Did you get my email? Just asking, no rush. Good luck with the whole college thing. That's quite an undertaking. I'm glad Ashley is staying close to home (must be nice for the both of you) :o)
