One of the projects that kept Paul and Veronica busy last week was a super batch of butter cookies. It happened in stages, making up the giant bowl of dough one day, then rolling, cutting and baking the next. Finally it was time to decorate!
Veronica was in charge of sprinkles, which was fine by her.
Jacinta got to “decorate” a cookie. Which meant licking the frosting off and starting over again. And again.
All the sprinkles have to be sampled, right?
Done! Didn’t I say it was a super batch?
Along with the more traditional Christmas shapes, Veronica picked out a few others that she liked. Thank you to Deb and Clint for the timely gift of fun cookie cutters, without which this cookie would not have been possible.
Nor this one. Dinosaurs are popular in our house.
This fish was the cookie that Veronica picked out to eat first. She took a few bites then set it aside to “save for later”. She still hasn’t finished it. Girl just doesn’t have a sweet tooth.
Jacinta, on the other hand…
A fun Christmas baking project. Now what to make next?
