I won’t lie, these cookies are a bit of a labour of love,  the require some prep, resting time and 4 colours of icing.  You can take short cuts.  Use edible markers for the details and really cut down on the time they take to decorate.

They won’t be QUITE as cute, but I say do what’s best for you and your family.  I’m not judging.  Honest, sometime less is more, but no matter which approach you take, these cookies are going to be a huge hit!
