I have completed my cookie baking for today. Hooray! I have not baked for my daughter's teachers yet, and may not get to that. But I am glad I have made my traditional orange peel cookie recipe that I make every year for my family. It just wouldn't be Christmas without this tradition!
First up..is my usual Christmas cookie cutouts. I use many different cookie cutters. Christmas trees, a church, Santa, Heart, Star, Dove, Angel, Rocking horse, Stocking, and many others, Oh, and of course a Bunny too!!
Not all of them are pictured:
Next...the snowflake cookies. I am thrilled with how they turned out!! Remember not too long ago I purchased snowflake cookie cutters from King Arthur Flour? Well, I am so glad I did! I knew I could make such pretty cookies with them! I made a sugar icing that turns hard and then I decorated the cookies with round jimmies and big sugar crystals..I tinted the icing with blue paste food coloring, oh, just a touch of the blue, not too much! What do you think?
They are very dainty ...
That's all for now, but very proud of myself, a great accomplishment for me today. When I feel good, I feel good, and it shows in all I do!!
I hope I have many more days like this, it makes me happy and smile. I wish I could share my cookies with all of you that care so much for me, for you deserve my cookies and so much more. Blessings to you!
