Christmas Sweater Cookies

How adorable are these Christmas sweater cookies??

My sister and I have been decorating Christmas cookies for… oh, forever. We started when I was in high school, or maybe even middle school with my mom, and have continued the tradition since moving out. We also started decorating other sugar cookies for other events with specific themes, making a few designs and repeating them to make whole platters of decorated cookies. And yet somehow, it’s taken us this long to realize that our normal scheme of decorating each cookie as its own masterpiece is an insane time-suck.

But no more! This year we had a theme, and a plan. And what says Christmas more than Christmas sweaters? So all of our cookies are decorated Fair-Isle style for some kitschy, festive cuteness.

Dark Chocolate Ginger Cookies with Candied Orange Slices

Well, that’s a mouthful! In the best kind of way. I just made these and they are ridiculously good, so I just had to share.

If you are absolutely done making Christmas cookies this year (and really, I won’t blame you. It’s only 5 days away!!) these would also make excellent cookies for a New Year’s party.

What I love about these cookies is that they’re still festive while being significantly different (and much less sweet) than most Christmas cookies. (more…)

Easter Cookies!

Tomorrow is Easter, so to celebrate, my sister and I decided to make some Easter-themed sugar cookies.

We’re still honing our skills– we’re definitely still amateurs, especially if you check out some of these cookies!

We did our best, though, and I thought we should share the results.  I think we’re getting better.

We made several different types of cookies, just to play around and see what we like.

First we have the chickies.
