this recipe for Smiley Face Cookies in a recent issue of Family Circle and had to try them out! I love smiley face cookies and have fond memories of them from my childhood. These were super easy to make and taste just as I remember.
The dough for these cookies is super easy and yummy! I left it in the fridge for a few days and it was fine. Just let it sit out a bit to soften up when you are ready to roll and cut. I spent about a week hunting down "powdered egg whites" for the frosting in the baking aisle. Turns out that Wilton sells it as "Meringue Powder" and thus it is by all the cake decorating items! I was not a fan of the frosting when I taste tested it, but my kids and husband liked it. On the cookie, it is just fine!
