It’s that time of year again! Christmas cookie time! I spent a lot of time this past weekend in the kitchen making cookies and listening to Christmas music. I started with sugar cookies. I never have a recipe handy so I’m usually googling the easiest recipe. I threw everything together and then let the dough chill over night.
I started rolling out the dough Sunday morning, but it wasn’t the best. It was too sticky and needed a little more time to warm up to room temperature before it wouldn’t stick to the counters and take the shapes I wanted. But after a little patience the cookies were baked and ready for frosting.
I found a three ingredient recipe for frosting in a cookbook we have at home. The red dye went in and I started frosting about half of the cookies. It tasted a little too much like the powdered sugar and less like the vanilla that I had added. So, I’m finding a new recipe for the green frosting.
I continued the tradition of making “No- Bake Cookies.” These are by far the easiest ones to make. I think I may have added a little too much cocoa. They are extra chocolatey, but I don’t think anyone is complaining much. I was able to start and finish these cookies on Saturday before I started wrapping gifts.
Yes, Saturday was a full blow Christmas day. The shopping, the wrapping, the cookies, and of course the music!
