Ready for the oven!
Now that it's Christmas Eve and Mom and Dad will be arriving later on today, that really will be the last of the cookies for this year. I don't know how much time I'll have to post over the next week or so, but I'll at least try to keep up with the photos so that I can post what we made and ate afterwards.
One year or two, we went all out and did the fancy icing cookies a la Martha Stewart, but I found those to be too much work and the boys were really just as happy with the sprinkles and sugars. What's more, I found that I really didn't care much for the taste of the iced cookies - the icing tends to overwhelm the nice buttery cookie - and the icing definitely changed the texture of the cookies after a day or so. So sprinkles and colored sugars it is!Sugar Cookies
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year.
