Christmas Cookies


Butter cookies

Made some cookies as a gift and these were some of them. You can use a basic butter cookie dough , add peanut butter chips for color effect. And below, I added green coloring and pure peppermint extract for the season. As for me I used my melting moment recipe, added more flour and make it into a crispy cookies. All with the feel by hands, so don't ask me for recipe ya. But you can certainly experiment with it. I did this few years back with the same recipe and I played around with it and created 5 different cookies.

Only when I wanted to make Christmas cookies did I realize that I don't even have a Christmas tree, snowflake and ginger breadman cookie cutters! Guess now I will have to look for those to buy when it's on sales or cheap to keep for next year! I really thought I have this common cookie cutters! *Duh right?*

Hi D,
Now you have mentioned it, it does look like a shooting star!! Perhaps it is a shooting star after all, before that I was totally clueless of what it was.

Hi Tigerfish,
Really meh? LOL! Not the peppermint one lah, but the butter cookies one can certainly play with it like putting a candied cherry in the middle instead.
