When I was growing up, my Mom would make this simple, but delicious sugar cookies. Now the cookies were great just by themselves. However, I have happy memories of gathering with friends and family surrounded by a bunch of different icing options and doing our best to make the cookies as pretty as possible.

As fun as it was just hanging out and spending time with people I love, I did think it would be nice if I could a little bit of a better job. ;)

So hey, if you're looking for something fun and a bit out of the ordinary to do with your family and friends, check out this 'Boho Chic' cookie decorating workshop coming up August 6 at Kiepersol's Salt Kitchen in Tyler, from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m., hosted by Juju's Cookie Decorating Workshops. Everyone is welcome, aged 6 years of age and above.

You'll be give six cookies, either Vanilla-Brown Sugar and White-Almond, to decorate and will receive instruction on how to make your cookies extra pretty using Juju's signature Royal-Glaze icing. The best part? You get to take them home to enjoy--although you may find they're too pretty to eat. ;) You'll have access to all the tools you need and you get a covered cookie box so it's easy to get them home.

They do ask that you get there just a bit earlier than the scheduled time to make sure you can check in and chill out before class begins promptly at 6:30.
