One of my favorite traditions...Christmas Cookies!

Every year I look forward to making Cookies with my Children. Now, when they were little I still loved it, but it took a bit more work. This year was a breeze (almost!) We started Friday night making cookie batters that needed to be refridgerated. JEB helped mix everything and we had so much fun together. On Saturday we started rolling dough and decorating. I sure do have some creative kiddos.
We made several different kinds of cookies and two kinds of fudge.
Here's the list:
Sugar cookies that we cut into shapes and decorated (I think that's a Christmas must for us!)
Peppermint Pinwheels
Elves Snickerdoodles
Gingerbread Men
Peanut Butter Fudge
Chocolate Fudge

We had a great time figuring out which ones we were going to make, then buying the fun decorative ingredients. But, I think the most fun part was Saturday night after all the baking and decorating was done, after we divided them into platters and covered and labeled them, and after the clean-up (ugh) was the relaxing and sampling! MMM MMM they were some good cookies!
