Christmas Cookies

cookies“Christmas cookies and happy hearts, this is how the holiday starts” Unknown

For as long as David and I have been married I have baked frosted sugar cookies every Christmas. When the kids came along the cookie tradition continued it just changed a little. Before kids the cookies were beautiful works of art. Each cookie was hand decorated with more than one color of frosting and actually resembled the shape it had been formed into. Now the cookies are decorated mostly with one color of frosting and sprinkles and it is often hard to tell what the cookie is suppose to be.

The one thing that has not changed is the taste. No matter what they look like they always taste the same- wonderful. Such a sugary crispy treat.  The kids and I always have fun baking together. We turn on the Christmas music and bake, frost, and sprinkle.  Then we eat the yummy treats.
