Christmas Cookies.

You may be wondering why I am only just now blogging about Christmas cookies. Well, it's because I'm late. I've had other more important things to post such as 2 year pictures, and besides my Christmas cookies that I thought were santa's turned out to really be pumpkins. What humliation! It's taken me a long time to get over it. Now that it's a new year and all, I'm looking up and forward. So I can post about humiliating things that have happened in the past. Such as thinking the cookie cutter was a santa head, when come to find out, it was a pumpkin! Guess you'll just have to take a look at these mighty tasty cookies that we didn't eat to find out...
See, if you turn the pumpkin VERTICAL it looks like a Santa face, and the stem of the pumpkin is part of his hat. But if the Santa is turned HORIZONTAL you can definately tell that santa is really not a santa at all, but instead a halloween decorative cookie cutter pumpkin. How was I to know? The candy canes kept falling apart! And stars? How are stars Christmas-y? Well, except for the one great star that shone bright for the shepherds to find Jesus. But that was not a cookie star.

Anyway, most of these cookies did not get eaten. I think they were too flour-y tasting. I did use a recipe I had from a cookie cookbook. I'm guessing the cook author likes flour. Or maybe the editor made a typo

At any rate, today is a snow day. The community in which I work is all out playing while I'm inside writing about cookies. I could be at home, in my bed, in my pj's, (will someone please send a letter to my office stating that wearing pj's to work on snow days can actually increase production?) and reading a good book while drinking Starbucks Pepperming Mocha. With whipped cream. Full fat. On a side note, actually this whole post is a side note, I had a coupon for a free skinny latte. So I tried one. Hated it. Give me all the fat you can pack into that cup! That should be one of the quotes they put on the back of their cup. I think that's all I have to say for today. Lucky you. Let's see what Dawson was doing on cookie day...

Perhaps if you hadn't decorated them in the traditional harvest colors of orange and gold? Just a helpful hint from the Cookie Queen!

P.S. Contact me secretly for the perfect Christmas Sugar Cookie recipe. It came from Taasha Tudor's book, "Take Joy." A Christmas Classic. Since you are family, this recipe will be free to you for the low monthly price of $19.95 forever. (How else am I going to pay for the neck lift?)

Nice cookies... you should have just told us they were Halloween cookies and we would have never known. :) They do look yummy. I could use a Fall Christmas cookie right now.

Poor Dawson... I hope he got his cookie.

Miss You!!
