I had put off cookie making long enough so for the second year in a row I used my stove top and the 12 inches I have left of counter space to roll out some dough.
They would have been fine-if I had left out the black pepper. I've never used it in cookies before and thought I might try it. I won't again. Ack....it is nasty. Not having any meringue powder on hand, I also tried out a recipe for eggless royal icing. You use honey instead and it worked just fine. In spite of my sloppy and impatient piping it dried nice and hard.
.....but it made a decent sugar cookie. You can't go wrong with sprinkles. That's my kind of decorating.
