Christmas Cookie Day

On Saturday I spent the day with my mother-in-law and two sisters-in-law baking and decorating cookies from 9:30 until about 4. We made dozens and dozens! We made:

red velvet cookies

pecan tarts

Peanut butter blossoms (you can kind of see that one hiding down there)

And of course, cutout cookies!

...I mean, LOT'S of cutout cookies:

Here are some close-ups of cute ones. Obviously, the gingerbread people are the most fun to decorate...

Di made this adorable Santa Claus gingerbread man. He's so cute!
This is supposed to be me and Luke...he's growing his beard right now for Colorado (he's leaving the day after Christmas) and this was to poke fun at it a little bit

I made 2 football players: an Ohio State player, and a Browns player (Peyton Hillis) as gingerbread people. For Luke, of course
We made lots and lots of Christmas trees

And snowmen

And stockings

By the end of the day, we were exhausted, and we didn't want to have to look at another cookie! Haha...but it was a fun day, and I think we made some cute creations :-)

And here are the three "artists"
Me, Maria, and Diana

It was definitely a day to get me into the Christmas spirit! We had a cookie-baking day last year, and I hope we do it again next year, too!


  1. That looks like fun!! The cookies turned out so well, too. I may just have to start an annual Christmas Cookie Day too!! :)

  2. Wow, that is a TON of cookies! They look great!

  3. Those cookies LOOK amazing!! You all did a great job, I did the same thing this weekend, but I must say my bookies didn't turn out like yours!!

  4. Those are super cute cut out cookies. You guys are so talented at decorating. Fun. Fun. Fun. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

  5. Those are beautiful cookies! I'm very impressed. :-)

  6. What a fun day! They look so delicious and cute!!!! I love that you're making a tradition out of it, too. But what are you going to do with all of them? I just can't imagine eating that many!

  7. HOW FUN! I want to do that with one of my friends, hopefully! :) Those all look so yummy...espeically the red velvet!

  8. Tatiana: We divided them all up and we're giving them out to friends and family and bringing them to parties...and keeping a few for ourselves, too ;-)
