I bought these cookie cutters in a mini baking set for children at True Value Hardware when I was 6.
They make perfect little gingerbread men!
I got a new piping bag, and had fun giving my cookies clothes. I think the men with neckties are my favorite.
I made about 8 dozen cookies! I ended up giving most of them away. When will I learn?
I used this recipe for the sugar cookies. There are two recipes on that page, and I used the first for both the frosting and the cookies. The only exception: I used half butter, half Crisco in the frosting.
The recipe for the chocolate chip cookies was from the bag of chips that I used. My mom said they were the best she'd ever had!
A little off topic, I know, but I handle my busy schedule by being very organized. I have fun with it, and color code everything. Friday night I finished up all my work and my desk looked so pretty and colorful I had to take a picture.
And finally, my sleepy cat by the fire.
