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.
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….
