You know what I *DON'T* need right now? To over-complicate things.

You know what I do EVERY. STINKING. DECEMBER?

Yeah.

You guessed it.

I over-complicate my life like I'm getting paid for it. Actually...if we're being completely honest here...and we should be... I mean, we're friends, right? We go way back. We should be the kind of friends that tell each other when their mascara is running and not let them go the ENTIRE FREAKING NIGHT with mascara on their cheek because it was just a little bit awkward to mention it, right guys? Don't be that kind of friend.

ANYWAY.

You're so distracting all the time.

I over-complicate my life like a 4 year trying to avoid bed time. Just ONE MORE detail. Just ONE MORE order. Just ONE MORE design. Just A FEW MORE colors. JUST ALL THE THINGS EVER BECAUSE NOW THAT I'VE GOTTEN TO THIS POINT I KNOW YOU WON'T SAY NO!!!!

Enter maniacal laughing.

And jumping on the bed.

And some crying in the closet while eating ice cream.

But definitely....definitely not a 4 year old quietly sleeping in her bed at a reasonable hour.

So...yeah...on the off chance that you ALSO need just ONE cookie design in your life that isn't too complicated this season -- I present to you - these trees.


How to make simple decorated Christmas tree sugar cookies


Step 1. 

Outline and fill the tree area of the cookie with a #3 tip and a medium consistency green icing. While the icing is still wet, add 3 dots of blue icing to the upper left corner, and a umm...mouth shape of lighter green icing on the bottom right. (This Christmas tree just got real weird, real fast.) Let it dry for a couple of hours.

Step 2. 

Fill in the star shape at the top of the cookie with red icing.

Step 3.

 Immediately cover with red sanding sugar. Check off the excess. Sleep. (Pretty sure you need THAT in your life about now.)
