At Christmas time we have a tradition ....
We make Santa cookies
and lots of them!
This year my son's friends actually started acting about them
in September ... making sure they were on the cookie list!
It all started when the kids were little
The sugar cookies were made while they were at school
and on a special evening all of the frosting components were set up
|the center of confectionery frosting is surrounded by|
chocolate chips, coconut, red sugar,
mini marshmallows and a cinnamon candy
and let the frosting begin....
even at 25 Matthew still loves this tradition
Ta-Dah! Santa Cookie
Love lining them all up!
This year there were two cookie nights
so Victoria wouldn't miss out!
So glad she's home from college!
It looks like Christmas!!
All boxed and ready to go!
We figured we made 25 DOZEN of these
cute little Santa Cookies this year!!
Growing up my mom started her cookie tradition
We made 24 dozen of the Press Cookies
(TWO at a time! it took awhile!)
All in all December was spent making over 50 dozen cookies!
It was such fun ...
and all were given to Family and Friends.
We did manage to save ONE box for
our Christmas dessert!
