Christmas Cookies 2011

Hey peeps.

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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚
