and... even more Christmas cookies

(alleen in het Engels)
Every year our kids bake Christmas cookies and decorate them. It's an annual event that they really look forward to. Especially the decorating part! We don't frown upon foodcolorings or amounts of sugar this time of year, they can just go ahead. They asked me to put some of the results here on my blog and here they are: We spend one whole afternoon decorating, every year I wonder how many cookies we are making in the first place, they seem endless. But they assured me that we had as many last year.
This year I used the recipe of Basic Sugar Cookies by Martha Stewart and that worked really well. For the icing I just used icing sugar -lots of it-, food colorings (powdered saffron for the yellow) and all the sprinkles we could find. We also have more cookies cutters each year, all packed away for next year! Happy holidays!

They look so nice, each and everyone of them. I bet your kids feel that theirs are the best they've ever eaten. Fun!
