These cookies have been a holiday tradition as long as I can remember. We had such fun making these. My mom and dad did all the hard work, we got to decorate – we had to decorate each one individually. Take your time, make it nice, don’t do it quickly (or heap a pile of frosting on top just so you can eat it, hee). Same with the tinsel, remember tinsel? One strand at a time!

From what I remember we had a reindeer, a Santa, a snowman and a Christmas tree cookie cutters. If you don’t have a cookie cutter use a glass and decorate them like ornaments! Right now I only have a Christmas tree cookie cutter, it’s my favorite and I haven’t seen another that I like as much (that won’t burn edges, etc) There are so many ways to decorate them! You can limit your colors, like I did, or have a plethora of colors and make them REALLY different!
Let the artistic side in you come out, make that wonderful “Grinch” green, mix your yellow/blue food coloring to achieve the different colors!
This recipe makes quite a few, but they are so good they are in danger of becoming extinct rather quickly!
Merry Christmas! 🎄 Catch you back here tomorrow!
