So clever, I wouldn't want to eat them, they are works of art! Great job Lesley!

P.S. I'm sure they are delicious!

Do you do all the lettering or do you use stencils?  I am still utterly amazed at your cookie work. You must be a HUGE  hit at cookie exchanges!

None of these are stencils - all are by hand.  Stenciled cookies have a little bit of a different look to them - the icing isn't "puffy," it's flat (not that you can really tell much from these particular pictures).

Even more amazed at your work. 

I have to ask are these traditional sugar cookies or a shortbread cookie? If a shortbread would you care to share the recipe? I am always looking for a good shortbread.

These are sugar cookies.  This is my go to recipe because they stay soft for a looooong time.

My husband loves soft sugar cookies.  I don't think I'd go to the trouble of decorating them like Lesley did though.  They look too pretty to eat.

Lesley - You must have the patience of a saint!  I cannot imagine being able to do all of that fine, precise lettering and decorating.  I think that if I received one of your cookies I'd rather save it than eat it, but I do love sugar cookies.  Thank you for posting your pictures.

It is definitely a process, but I enjoy doing them for events or special occasions.  I always get reactions from people that make it worth it.  It's just a hobby, so I don't really get to do them as much as I would like.  Don't you just hate it when your day job gets in the way of baking?
