Cookies to send to friends in Iowa and Ohio are baked, decorated, packaged, and in the mail.
The Ho-Ho-Ho cutter is new this year. I have made them before by piecing two cutters together, but this year I purchased a cutter designed by Mike at SemiSweetDesigns. I was unable to manage the crisp clear lines that Mike had and my elf looks a bit tipsy, but I keep telling myself, "it's just a cookie."
I had no intention of repeating the cars and trucks that I made last year for my family because it is time consuming to piece together the car and tree from two cutters. However, when I found this tin and card with the same theme, I thought they would be a fun package to send to friends.
In addition, an internet search helped me find some inspiration for more realistic looking trees.
SweetSugarBelle. That reindeer just makes me smile.
To friends near and far,
love, hugs, cookies,
a very Merry Christmas!
