Christmas Cookies

Cookie Decorating Essentials

One of my fabulous co-workers suggested that we do a cookie/treat exchange at work. I loved the idea. After all, I like to bake and decorate.

I’m terrible at cut-out cookies.

The dough doesn’t roll right. The cookies rip when I transfer them from the counter to the cookies sheet. The edges end up burned.

So, I bought Holiday Cut-Out Cookies from Market Day. I’m not a fan of the frosting, so I also got Betty Crocker Whipped icing and decors.

Lily got to decorate first. She got 6 of each cookie (snowmen, stars, trees), half of the candies, and 4 decor shakers.

We attempted to have her do the icing before decorating, but that wasn’t working out well, so I iced and she decorated.

Navy had fallen asleep while the first batch was in the oven, so he decorated his after dinner.

He got the remaining cookies and candies, but only 3 shakes. I thought the one “holly” shaker would be too messy.

He did really well. Didn’t lick or eat any cookies he wasn’t supposed to. Didn’t stick his fingers in the frosting.

I can definitely see our family repeating this next Christmas, hopefully with homemade cookies!

Got a good (fool proof) cut-out cookie recipe?
