Finally! Some Christmas cookies!

Although the snow has yet to really fly this Christmas season for us, I couldn’t wait to break out the snowflake and mitten cutters.

The boundless options for snowflakes are always appealing.  So many designs – all unique!  Also, there’s a simplicity to making snowflake cookies.  Usually, I decorate with white on white, with a little snow shimmer to finish.  The cookies are flooded in white the night before and the next night, creativity can step right in without a stop at the icing color mixing station.

The mittens didn’t take too much more thinking, just a bit of red and green, always on hand at Christmastime.

I also threw in the smiling tree because we all need a little cute in Christmas.

The Santa is a blissful take on a Meri Meri two cutter set I found in the Fancy Flours catalog in November.  When I saw it, I simply had to have it, ASAP.

As you might know, my name is Kristina and I am a cookie cutter addict.  I make goat trails out of bins of cookie cutters.  I honk for cookie cutters.  I make friends think twice about leaving their best cutters out in plain view, for fear that I’ll get my floured mitts on them and never let go….  Christmas is an especially difficult time for these friends – what with all the vintage, well made cutters from Grandma – waiting for me to drool over.  They’re lucky I don’t have big puppy dog eyes….

Warm woolen mittens (with garnish)!

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens. Brown paper packages tied up with string.  I know, still more of my favorite things.

Before the holiday week between Christmas and New Year’s slips away, along with immediate opportunities for packages tied up with string, I have one more festive gig to attend.  Tomorrow, my much more lyrically talented girlfriends and I are headed to a Sound of Music Sing Along.  Too bad I have a stuffy nose and I am about 10 months pregnant!

I’m seeing a designated driving adventure and a thin connection to the last of my holiday cookies for the year – warm woolen mittens and snow glittered holly berries.  Happy New Year!
