Only a couple more Christmas posts left...I promise!
One of my favorite Christmas traditions is making cutout sugar cookies. I remember making them every year growing up...& how fun it was decorating each shape. The candlesticks were my favorite! Now my favorites are the Christmas lights & the doves as well as making mini cookies for Santa's elves. :)
Grady really got into it this year. He poured all of the ingredients into the mixer himself (except for the egg), & mixed up the powdered sugar frosting too! He went for more of the abstract/tie-dyed look on his cookies which turned out pretty awesome. I tried to keep things simple by only doing 4 basic colors of frosting with a few sprinkles, although if it were just me frosting them I'd probably have had every color in the rainbow! :)
Grady's special request was that I make him a "cock robin" cookie...from one of his favorite obscure nursery rhymes. See his tie-dyed candy cane back there?! He's such an artist! ;)
There was just enough dough left over to make a special cookie just for Grady. His new favorite Christmas book this year was "How the Grinch Stole Christmas", so I frosted a little Grinch head for him. Loved it!
Maybe I should have made more than one...
