Wild Christmas Cookies With My Kids

My Auntie Phyllis is always so great to remember my kids at Christmastime! This year she sent cookie molds, measuring cups and measuring spoons along with a how-to guide for painting the cookies. I promised her I’d post pictures once we had a chance to break it all open and experiment. We had a great time making a humongous mess celebrating the season!I used a traditional shortbread cookie recipe – unsalted butter, sugar and flour, and frosting from powder sugar and water.

Sully’s cookies had an impressionist flair. Monet would like his! (You wouldn’t know I had his hair cut two weeks ago.)


Juliette did a fantastic job on this!

The Super Bridgy was really into painting.

He calls her Juey these days. It’s very sweet.

    Those cookies look delicious. My friend Nora and I are getting together to make Xmas cookies but they won’t rock the cookies your kids made.

    @LE – The cadence of your comment! It’s melodic!!! I want to hear this voice in person someday. I’m so bummbed you’re bummed! They do grow up too fast, Le. Especially Sully. I looked down one day and he was practically nestled in the crook of my arm and shoulder. When did he stop being a baby?

    Auntie Phyllis seems to have ESP when it comes to sending gifts. They are always (Just what we wanted!)

    What fun! making cookies and making memories at the same time. You need to “frame” these works of ART.

    Love the smiling faces, and YES– I can hear you screaming…

    Love you– Mom
