I wanted to bake some cookies for Christmas, something fun to look at for kids and delicious to eat of course. I wanted a basic butter cookies and I found the recipe at Joy of Baking website. Then, I just used my figure cookie cutter and started creating. I enlisted both my girls to help me to decorate as this was the fun part of making Christmas cookies. Needless to say, both of them were so happy that they got to help. Edda did the buttons, Evy did the red sprinkles and I drew the eyes and mouth. :-)
This butter cookies were buttery and crispy when you baked until the edges were brown. If you take it out too early, the cookies would be soft. They couldn't wait for the cookies to be cool completely before trying. Got to say, we all loved it and had fun making it! We loved the fragrant of the butter!
Hereby wishing all my readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Safe New Year 2011!!!
