Christmas is a wonderful time to experiment with new cutters and cookie designs. In addition to the lovable snowman, there are so many options . . . ornaments, snowflakes, lightbulbs, and Santa's.
In addition to my standard vanilla and almond flavored sugar cookie recipe, I mixed up a batch of "Brownie" cookies for those in the family who enjoy a chocolate fix. The dark background makes the Royal Icing colors pop.
Merriest of Christmas wishes to . . .
those who order cookies throughout the year, allowing me to share in their special events . . .
to those fellow crafters who share their passion for cookie decorating on FLICKR,
and to my littlest fans who are part of quality control . . .
Jack, Kendra, and Kylie
|Jack will be 2 in March. He says, "cook" when he wants one of Grandma's cookies.|
|Kendra likes Princess cookies best, but she wants full-body. None of this "just the dress" stuff.|
|Kylie is so sweet that she doesn't need cookies!|
and "Cookie" is one of the first words they learn to speak!
I should probably also throw out a special wish to my husband who happily handles all of my rejects.
Have a wonderful holiday . . .
spread some cheer . . . one cookie at a time!
