I'm not a baker, but I usually do try to do some baking at the holidays. I have fond memories of going to my grandparents for Christmas and my grandmother would have tins filled with Christmas treats and cookies. Her decorated sugar cookies were always my favorite. So yesterday my daughter Brooke and granddaughter Leila came over and we baked some cookies, but wait it wasn't all that easy and this is why I am not a baker....something always goes wrong.
So we rolled and then Leila helped cut them out.
Then we used icing and colored sugar.
And you see how excited a little one is to see her artwork.
The best part is they actually taste good. Who knew?
Oh, and the other dough that I made from scratch? Well, I placed it in small balls on the cookie sheet and sprinkled them with the colored sugar and they turned out very thin and crispy, but still edible. That recipe was just not right.
The main thing is having fun and enjoying this time with family and creating fun memories. I wish I had all the grand kids here to do this together, but they can't come till Christmas eve.
Maybe next year.
I hope y'all create wonderful memories this holiday season.
Well, back to wrapping all those presents.
I HAVE DECIDED TO CANCEL WOW US WEDNESDAYS THIS WEEK. JUST ENJOY TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
