Cookies Cookies Cookies!

Last Sunday, we had our Chinese students over that we host, to make and decorate sugar cookies. Truth be told, this was my first time to make sugar cookies from scratch. I've made icing before and other cookies, but sugar cookies scared me.
What better way to overcome this fear than to invite people and over and make them all together? ha!

I made my mom's Wassail-apple cider, ginger ale, cloves, cinnamon sticks, red hots, and an orange. yum!

Getting ready!

I basically read the instructions and let them do all the work! kidding....

I might have been a little bossy. Daniel said i wasn't, but i sure felt like i was!

Dexin wanted to mix everything on high. it was a little scary at times.

We made about 6 dozen with one batch!

They started getting really creative and instead of using the cookie cutters, making their own design. I stuck with the cookie cutters :)

The ones that look like a child iced them, that would be me.

For dinner we had chili and cornbread!

 Merry Christmas!


  1. How fun!!! Merry Christmas y'all!

  2. Oh my! I have to have the cookie cooling rack. Where did you get it? Consider selling it? :)
