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…)
I know I teased you all last week with a sneak peek of these cookies. I’m finally getting around to telling you all about them.
Even before Nate & Elizabeth were officially engaged, my sister & I volunteered to make cookies. This was before we thought about the fact that Nate’s family alone could fill up the church. Luckily for us, Elizabeth had a lot of people make a lot of different kinds of desserts. So we didn’t have to make enough for everyone. We made about 80.
We had originally planned to only make cakes, but last-minute I decided to make some hearts as well, and I’m so glad I did. I think the hearts are my favorite.
I promised you some more decorated cookies, and here they are! I apologize for there being only a few pictures of these, but last week was ridiculously busy (hence being MIA from the blog all week) and I was kind of haphazard with the picture-taking.
Hopefully you still get the idea.
I know I’ve been a little MIA on the blog here. Sorry. I was really hoping to be able to make Easter cookies again this year, but I’m afraid my life won’t slow down enough for that to happen.
But in case you missed them, check out my Easter cookies from last year!
I have to say, I think we’ve come a long way in our cookie decorating since last year. And I promise, more decorated cookies are coming soon!
May I also suggest checking out some of my favorite Easter treats from my fellow bloggers? These are soooo cute!
