It was all a bit last minute, and the cookies didn't exactly come out of the oven looking all perfect, but we had fun, and it was all grand.
We used one of those Pillsbury tubes of sugar cookie dough, rolled them out and used cookie cutters, and then rolled them into little balls and pressed them into the shaped cookie tray.
They came out all either too blobby, all spread out, or a little crunchy, like a bigger chip. Oh well.
We still had loads of fun decorating them, nevertheless. This year, we used homemade icing/glaze as well as store-bought tubes we had on hand.
Decorating cookies is indeed messy business, but oh so much fun.
We ended up with quite a few masterpieces, and even daddy got in on the act and decorated one. Can you guess which one?
Till next year, Santa!
