This year I decided to spend less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying the season with family and friends. As a result, all of my good intentions to make a lot of new and different cookie designs will have to wait until next year. Instead, I opted for traditional Christmas colors, design favorites of the family and some cutters that I have had for years but never used.
I did complete a few orders for friends. . . a dozen for Kathy and Joe to send to their friends in Iowa, and a few good men for Lyn to give to some committee members at school. I changed the beard from last year and opted for a humorous tag.
I chose Mrs. Claus as the design for the Our Lady of Victory Women's club. Once again, I revised the design from last year and followed SSB's tutorial to use a Halloween skull cutter in place of my round design. Mrs. Claus' tag said, "Behind Every Good Woman. . .", but I forgot to take a picture of it.
It is somewhat of a tradition that I add a new and different Santa and Reindeer each year, so I added two new cutters to my collection.
This year the great-nieces/nephews
will find personalized stockings on the dessert table.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!!!
