Sugar cookies are the best mainly for decorating purposes.  These were really fun to make with my family and bff this past weekend.  You can follow this simple sugar cookie recipe here but the frosting is the key to these so they harden and look pretty to decorate! 
2 cups confectioners sugar
1-2 tbsp milk (add more if it is too thick)
1 tbsp light corn syrup 
1/4 tsp of lemon extract (you could also do vanilla or almond!) 
Cream the first to ingredients together so they become light and fluffy.  With a mixer, add the light corn syrup and extract.  It should be really smooth and glossy, this is key to hardening after you frost them.  
Happy Baking!
