Slice and bake American Flag Sugar Cookies are easier than traditional cut-out sugar cookies!
Ahhhh Memorial Day...the perfect symbol of the "start" of summer in my neck of the woods. And the 4th of July is the perfect symbol for the middle of summer! Both are great times to bake up a batch of these fun and easy American Flag Sugar Cookies!
Memorial Day weekend is usually spent at home with my family working on getting things ready for summer! Hauling out the patio furniture, digging bikes out from the garage and dusting them off, and washing and waxing the cars. This day of work is often followed by a dinner of grilled hamburgers and corn on the cob. I splurge at times and grab steak and usually throw in a bag of potato chips, which is a delicacy at our house. I don't buy chips often because we all just gorge on them!
When the 4th of July comes around, I can assure you there is more red meat on the grill and fireworks! Not to mention a day off of work where the entire family is home! It's just a great day to enjoy celebrating America's Birthday! Which is also a perfect time to make these American Flag Sugar Cookies! We all seem to have our own favorite sugar cookie recipe, and this one is mine. You're more than welcome to use your own and follow my instructions on how to make the flag shape.
