frosted sugar cookies recipePillsbury asked a group of bloggers to turn a favorite cookie recipe into one that uses Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough.  It took me all of about 2 seconds to decide what I wanted to make.  I love going to the grocery store and buying the sugar cookies with the thick, colored frosting on top, you know which brand I am talking about.  I try to not buy them, because I have a really hard time resisting them.

Let’s be honest, sometimes a cookie is a vehicle for frosting.  This recipe will make cookie and frosting lovers alike, very, very, happy.  I have yet to meet anyone that can resist a soft sugar cookie with a thick layer of almond scented frosting.  These cookies take sugar cookies to a whole new level and are so easy to make, a no-stress holiday cookie.

Check out what the other talented bloggers came up with here.
