This was my first attempt at making sugar cookies. I found a simple recipe online and couldn't wait to try it out. While the cookies turned out quite tasty, the preparation was another story. Did you know that the dough needs to stay cold so you can cut those adorable shapes out? I didn't think it mattered. I was wrong. So next year I will make sure the dough is prepared early and chilled for a few hours before we roll it out. It was such a pain in the tushy to have to put the cookie dough back in the fridge after cutting out a few shapes each time. It took twice as long to cut and decorate all the cookies.
Our cookie shapes included Stars, Trees, Gingerbread Boys & Girls and Snowmen. I hope everyone (who received the cookies) enjoyed them as much as we enjoyed creating them for you all! :)
We received an invite for a small party on Christmas Eve at the Reidinger household. After our church service, we stopped by to visit with Keith, Heather (Chris' co-worker) and their adorable little girl, Ella. Thanks again for inviting us Keith and Heather!
