Early Morning Gingerbread Cookie Making
This morning we were up early to continue working on our Christmas cookie making. This morning we started out with making Gingerbread boys and girls. The kids and I had so much fun rolling, cutting, and baking them but of course the best part of all is the decorating. I decided to try something a little different this year I put the Royal Icing in a squeeze bottle to make it easier for the kids to handle and it works like a charm. Wilton makes them and you can pick them up any place they sell cake making supplies. Next we are going to do traditional sugar cookie cut-outs and get those frosted up. So far this is what we have completed.
White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
Lemon Coconut Cookies
Gingerbread boys and girls
We have a few more kinds to make and then I am going to attempt to make traditional German Stollen. It's one of Ole's Christmas favorites so I think it will be the perfect treat to have with our Christmas dinner tomorrow.
