Merry Christmas!

My final set of cookies before Christmas. These were made for family and co-workers. I have to work on Christmas Day.....so I thought I'd brighten the day of all of us that have to work on probably the most precious day of the year.

I wanted to make some unique cookies from those I've done all December......but I did make some of the "old favorites" too. ;-)

I have a FABULOUS tree cutter that I purchased from Ecrandal Originals that I've hesitated to use before because it us HUGE. But for family where I am taking platters, I thought it would be fun to use some of the larger cutters to make centerpiece type cookies. Here's the trees (about 7" tall!) in my favorite designs.


Here's some minis of one of my fav tree designs, plus holly that was inspired by Cookie Artisan.



I made some small "gingerbread" houses....


Simple presents....


Fun Christmas tags......I love how these turned out!


Fireplace with stockings......my husband tells me I need to work on the fire. : /


A giant gingerbread house......this house is 7" tall and so much fun to do. :-) My inspiration came from Johnna and Fantabulous Goodies


A little bit of everything. :-)


We are celebrating Christmas Eve tonight since I have to work Christmas Day.....so I'm off to be with my family and enjoy the season. Merry Christmas to you all! Thanks for following my blog and being such wonderful friends. :-))))))))))

I love your cookies! They are all adorable. Where did you get your gift tag cookie cutter? That's such a cute idea!

Merry Christmas! Your cookies are beautiful as usual. How do you get your colors to be so neat and not "bleed" into each other?

Very cute! YOu'll have to check out mine at my blog. I like how you outlined the cookies after flooding them. Neat idea!

Pam said...

Thanks everyone for you kind comments and Christmas wishes. :-)

Work wasn't too bad on Christmas Day. We really didn't have much to do, so it was kind of pleasant. Plus, it decided to snow a little outside, so that made it feel very Christmas-ey. (I love snow!)

Molly.....I'm not sure where I got the gift tag cookie cutter, but look through some of the links of cookies supplies I have on the right side bar. It is probably in one of those sites. (And if you are like me, you love looking through all the sites. ;-))

One trick to no bleeding (especially for red icing) is to add Americolor Bright White to the whole batch of icing.....then divide and add the other colors. The drawback is that I've only found Bright White in the teeny bottle.....I need a 4.5 oz of that stuff!!!

Tami.....cute site! I enjoyed looking through your pics. :-)

Happy New Year everyone!!!!
