If there’s anything that you want
If there’s anything I can do
Just call on me and I’ll send it along
With love from me to you
When I found these adorable tag cookie cutters, I knew right away that they needed to be part of our Christmas cookies this year. And when I thought about what to write on them, this song immediately popped into my head. And then my imagination started flowing, figuring out how to combine Christmas with this love theme. Then my sister suggested using a turquoise and red color scheme, and these penguin cookies were born. (more…)
Oh my goodness, guys. Can you believe I haven’t made any decorated cookies since May?? That’s crazy. I’m not sure I’ve gone that long between cookie batches since I started decorating cookies. I mean, seriously decorating cookies. Decorated sugar cookies have been a Christmas tradition in my family since I was in high school (or maybe before.)
I’m not going to say much in this post because it’s already my bedtime and I’m pretty much just desperate to get some kind of Christmas-related post on here, since it’s ONE WEEK UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!!! Goodness. Where does my life go?
So here are a bunch of pretty cookies. Sorry, no tutorials, but the techniques aren’t really any different than other ones I’ve shown you. They’re not drastically different than last year’s. We were running out of creativity. (more…)
This week has been totally nuts. And will continue to be nuts because it’s almost Christmas! Anyway, I wanted to share with you all the sugar cookies we made for Christmas this year. They’re pretty cute! But because I’m short on time, these pictures are unedited, and have very little descriptors… I hope you all are ok with that. 🙂
I used the same sugar cookie recipe I usually do, only I added 1 tsp. cardamom, 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg. I also used 1 tsp. almond extract and no vanilla. I flavored the royal icing with 1 tsp. almond as well. We had some icing consistency issues, so they’re not quite as detailed as they usually are. But I think they’re still ok. 🙂
Merry Christmas! This year for our Christmas Cookie theme we did an ode to holiday baking with these simple Christmas Kitchen Cookies! And these come with a new roll-out cookie recipe for orange spice cookies that are filled with festive winter flavor that will delight you!
