If I have to decorate another Christmas Cookie this year I'll...
Jack and I are still watching the kids. We'll have them for several more days, and as many of you know, entertaining children is challenging to say the least.
I got this brilliant idea to bake Christmas cookies.
I love to bake so I thought it would be fun and easy. It was fun, but not so easy.
We had bought some fancy cookie cutters with designs in the middle of them. Candy Canes, Angels, Christmas Trees, Santa, Stars and Reindeer.
I made tons of colored icing and we used toothpicks to decorate them.
Jack wanted us to make enough for him to take to work, so I doubled the recipe. We ended up making 4 dozen cookies! The kids did a fabulous job of decorating and being creative with their designs. They might not be professionals, but they definitely took pride in their creations.
Let me just quickly point out that the picture I posted looks totally different than our creations! Our were fabulously creative and much more colorful!
It took most of the day for us to get it done. By the time we were finished, ALL of us were over it! I swear next year I'm just buying plain cookie cutters next year! Of course, Jack came home after we were finished...lol!
At least he took us out for Pizza and drove us around to look at Christmas Lights.
Today we're tackling Gingerbread houses...gulp! Am I crazy? Wait don't answer that! Wish me luck!
