Woo-hoo, only a week left until Christmas!
This morning before you leave for the mall, make up a batch of sugar cookie dough and put it in the refrigerator to chill while you're gone (or 2-3 hours). This evening, roll out the dough and go to town with your cookie cutters (or use the mouth of a juice glass as a cutter for round cookies).
Decorate them with your favorite frosting or use the Royal Icing recipe from Day 15. I dipped mine in Royal Icing and then into red-and-white sugar crystals. Yum!
It's easy, it makes the house smell great - and it's Christmas-y!
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe!
