And it is this time of the year again! Christmas is there and once again, I was not able to accomplish everything I wanted to beforehand. Of course, I had to do some last minute Christmas present shopping as I usually have the best ideas when it is too late…
What I also did last week was baking the last round of Christmas cookies. This time some really traditional butter cookies with Christmas decoration! I love rolling out the dough and cutting out star-, tree-, angel- and bell-shaped cookies…
Once the cutting is done and the cookies are in the oven, the best part begins: Waiting in front of the oven for them to be ready while enjoying the beautiful smell of freshly baked Christmas cookies! Yum!!!
I left some of them as they where – just pure cookies without any toppings but some others, I decorated nicely with Christmas style toppings such as sugar icing and little sugar Christmas trees, stars and pearls:
I love using these cookies for add-ons to my usual Christmas presents! Just something nice and self-made for everyone to enjoy. They just give every present a non-materialistic touch. I wish I had more time to make more presents on my own. I usually have great ideas but am lacking the time to execute them.
What about you? Are you baking Christmas cookies this time of the year? What sort of Christmas cookies do you like and are you making them yourself? Please share!
With this, I would like to say thanks to all of you for reading and supporting my blog! I wish you all a wonderful Christmas with all your loved ones!!! Merry Christmas everybody!!!
