We recently made cookies with our friends, and I was on the sugar cookie team. They were so much fun to decorate! So fun that I spent quite a long time decorating my 12 cookies – about two hours in fact. Heh heh. 🙂 But it was really fun, trust me! Of course, I couldn’t let those pretty cookies disappear down peoples’ throats without saving the results of all my labor in picture form. So here they are – my sugary works of art. Warning: you may be hungry for cookies after this! And another note while I’m at it. The “Merry Christmas” cookie was drawn in edible markers, just in case you were wondering. 🙂

I learned how to frost this mitten cookie↓ from the American Girl magazine. It’s a really fun technique that looks really pretty. Basically you frost the cookie in one color, add stripes of icing in another color, and drag a toothpick through the stripes in the opposite direction the stripes go. (Like if the stripes are horizontal, drag your toothpick vertically up and down the cookie.)
One random note: does it bother anyone else when “cookie” is spelled “cooky,” like in old books?
Ahem. Did you decorate or bake any Christmas goodies yet this year? Christmas certainly a delicious time of year, isn’t it? And Christmas is only four days away! I just told you that in case, for some really strange reason, you haven’t already told yourself a million times today.
Before Christmas I’m going to do a post with really cute pictures involving bunnies and Christmas. I can’t wait to show it to you! Until then…
