They turned out just fine- I may even just change the recipe and make them this way every Christmas,
My helpers- almost 5 year old Gavin was a help, spreading frosting and dipping the cookie tops into coconut and sprinkles. 17 month old Braeden kept us company and sure enjoyed his cookie, but he wasn't much help this year- in time I think he will though,
My mother and aunts first made these cut out cookies more than 50 years ago. We have them every year and I hope we always do.
I have posted lots of desserts and sweets lately, but this will probably be the last sugar laden post for awhile. Once Christmas celebrating is over, we will back to eating lots of salads and fruits.
Merry Christmas everyone!
