"O" is for Orange Owl Cookies!

Hoot! Hoot! We're in charge of the preschool snack tomorrow, something that starts with "O". I wanted something fun but simple enough for the girls to make themselves. So, we came up with these fun
Orange Owl Cookies




Start with frosting, orange sprinkles, your favorite sugar cookie recipe, an assortment of candy, and some ready hands!

You can pick your own candies, but we used Gummy Life Savers/Skittles for eyes, and hard Life Savers for beaks (cut them in half). Frost with orange frosting, roll edges in sprinkles, and decorate as shown. Makes sure to hoot while you're decorating!! Happy Baking!

We all seeem to have a favorite sugar cookie recipe that we swear is the best, here is mine. It's the best!! Really!......:) It's super easy and so yummy!
