Every year I take one day off of work to do all of my Christmas baking. This year, I took last Friday off since we were having people over on Saturday. Last year I did it earlier, and we barely had any cookies left by the time Christmas Day rolled around. So, I waited a bit longer this year. This year I made:
- Cut out Sugar Cookies with Butter Icing (I use almond extract instead of vanilla)
- Butterballs (Russian Tea Cakes)
- Chocolate Thumbprints
- Glazed Pecans (these are SO easy and yummy!)
Ty really did a great job in helping me in the morning. He is getting great at cracking eggs, measuring and stirring.
Of course he loved licking the beaters and spatulas even more after the doughs were made!
The cookie press has to be one of the greatest inventions ever!
He’s so good at cutting them out too now!
Thank goodness my sister came over to help me finish up decorating because I was SO exhausted from baking all day.
Now we know where he gets it!
