Day two of baking cookies! In addition to making snickerdoodles and gingersnaps, today we decorated the sugar cookies. It was a long undertaking, and we didn’t even decorate all of them! (I’m using about 80 to teach a class at one of my elementary schools. Yeah, helping 8-year-olds decorate cookies for Christmas!) We didn’t have that many decorations or colors, so I got creative: dipping green-iced trees in sugar to make them look “snowy” (and white-iced bears in sugar to make polar bears). Swirling icing. I cut up some chocolate to use for eyes and the like. And then we had a few sprinkles.
Didn’t make as many cookies as I would have liked, and I’m also missing two of the classics–Holiday Poppyseed Cookies and Russian Tea Cakes (snowballs). But I think I may make those when I’m in London.
😀 YAY IT’S CHRISTMAS SEASON.
