Christmas Cookies!

I know it’s only 4 months past Christmas 2013…. but never too late to revisit some Christmas cookie making. As you can see, I’m catching up on my post backlog 🙂

I had the girls over for a Christmas cookie decorating party and wanted to post the fruits of our labor. We had an assortment of sugar cookies and gingerbread cookies. I love the basic sugar cookie recipe by Sweet Sugar Belle, found here. There really is minimal spreading during baking, hence less cookie shape distortion. As far as the gingerbread, I just used the Pillsbury ready-made cookie dough- which surprisingly holds it’s shape well and also tastes delicious!
