I don't know how long it will be before they are too old to do this, or I am, but for now the annual cookie cutter cookie bake is still a happening thing with the grands, and Jill too. Yes, Tom gets to play a little too, and I am always on a roll (out).
This was 2008, in Fort Morgan, CO.
Gingerbread and sprinkles then too.
The decorating was a bit less precise then, but just as intense.
Those cute aprons I made don't fit anymore, well, except for Jill's, but they were here this year anyway, just not worn.
We cut out and baked the gingerbread first, and let them cool while we cut out, decorated, and baked the lemon sugar cookies. Then we used royal icing to detail the gingerbread.
Here are the results. Sprinkles are plentiful.
Oops. Sideways again, so bend your neck. Ouch. .
Tom was a huge help in the kitchen, especially with the continual clean up.
We started about 3:00, since it was early release Friday at their schools, and I managed to have dinner on the table for all of us by about 6:15. Yay, me.
Another successful Christmas cookie bake is in the books. We have to wait to eat the cookies.
