I think one of my favorite things to do during the Christmas season is baking and decorating cookies. It's one of those things that doesn't call my name that much the rest of the year for some reason, but as a fun thing to do with friends and family it ranks up there among my favorite memories.
I found this cookie stamp at Marshall's while I was out shopping last week and for $3.99 I couldn't resist. Once I had stamped these sugar cookies I thought it would be fun to use the lines it made to guide my decorating.
I pulled out the decorating sprinkles and went to work. How many of you thought those little silver balls were bad for you to eat when you were little? My mom always told me to pick them off, as if they were actual little ball bearings put on my cookies by someone intent on feeding me something that would break my teeth. Imagine my surprise when I finally got brave enough to eat one and found it was just...sugar.
I love using them now, they add some sparkle and we all know how I feel about that ;>)
Do you make cookies to give away? Anyone hosting or going to a cookie swap this year? What's your favorite kind of Christmas cookie? Do tell!
