The Christmas spirit, in cookies

post pictures here of your Christmas cookies, hopefully that you made, but that are at least HAND made.

These are my forte. Regular sugar cookies (thought I put a touch of grated candied ginger in the batter) , frosted with powdered sugar icing (and I add a touch of lemon zest and a wee bit of almond extract and /or rum)

Then , once the icing has dried hard, you can "paint" them with food coloring that is watered down a tiny bit, using fine tip brushes.

Very cute! I haven't made any yet, but will share pics when we do.

In the meantime, my favorite Christmas song

I love the topmost horse one! So good! They're all super great though. :)

Also, my mom and I used to make those cookies ALL the time when I was little! I loved painting them so much. And they taste so good!

Maybe I can twist her arm into doing them again with me this year, I miss it.

Could you send me some, tiny? I can't tell if they are good or bad without tasting first!
