What better to do on Christmas Eve than make Christmas cookies?
So, we did. Using this recipe from Sarah @ Redefining Perfect. The only thing I changed is that I used 1/2 almond extract and 1/2 vanilla because I was afraid the almond would be too strong for Sam.
They are delicious.
We did sprinkles for some.
And icing for others. The little tubes of cookie icing at the grocery store? So awesome!
Can you guess which ones Sam made?
Apparently he is the opposite of other kids, who slather the frosting on until there is four times as much icing as cookie.
Seriously, his cookies don't even have enough icing for me.
I prefer mine.
Here are some of my favorites.
And a favorite my sister made.
I also learned what happens when you forget that the sprinkles don't have a shaker top on them.
And what happens when you laugh at yourself, so your 4 year old thinks it's funny.
Did you do cookies this year?
