Cookies for Santa - Iced Sugar Cookies
Every year I like to try out a new cookie recipe for our 'Santa Cookies'. Surprisingly enough, I have NEVER made sugar cookies before... so, that is what we made this year! Here is Nathan, helping Mommy with getting the ingredients into the bowl.
Autumn is such a big help now, too! Its amazing how much she can do this year compared to last!
This was the yummiest tasting dough EVER! Autumn insisted that I let her roll the dough out... however, as you can see... she was a little rough with that dough! heehee!
The kids had the most fun with the cookie cutters, they even wanted to do non Christmas shapes. I have a huge tub of 100 cookie cutters, so there were a lot of Christmasy cutters in there.
Next, I made some icing for the cookies, and Autumn tinted her dye red and Nathan tinted his green. I also had some white icing for me to decorate with...
