Those were so much fun to make. My daughter and I spent hours on them! She made the dough, rolled it out, cut out the cookies and cooked them and I took care of the decorating (well, she helped with that too…) My son’s girlfriend even gave us a hand. She made a turkey (a turkey! who wants to eat a cookie shaped like a turkey?) and we promised that we would decorate it for her, but ended up forgetting. So the poor thing now lies alone in a plate, undecorated, plus, it’s got no feet. Poor thing really.
This was my first try decorating sugar cookies, I am fairly happy with the results. And I think that those who were offered some of those cookies as a Christmas present appreciated them. Well… I certainly hope they did!
As you can see, we had quite a bunch to decorate too!
