The humble sugar cookie doesn’t often get its due. Too often it’s coated in bright garish icing and is inedibly sweet. Our recipe delivers a simple, chewy cookie that’s the perfect canvas for our favorite minimal, almost stark, decoration. A bright, white sugar cookie with a few colorful accents really makes a statement when compared with the color overload of most sugar cookies.
