12 Days of Connection: Cookie Baking

Nothing says holidays to me quite like the smell of cookies baking, or maybe swiping a little cookie dough to eat.    We're kicking of the last 12 days to Christmas with daily holiday activities that focus on connection and with a baker and 3 avid cookie fans, what better way to kick things off?

Since we do celebrate Santa, I'll be encouraging James to think about which cookies he'd like to set aside for Christmas Eve.  We've explained Santa is working hard and we want to leave him a snack instead of treating it like a requirement.

So here's the cookie recipes we'll be noshing on this week.  I hope you'll mix, roll, and bake with us!

Rosemary Shortbread Cookies

We decorated gingerbread today and I can say that, while labour intensive (and MESSY!), the experience of painting all that icing and candy onto the gingerbread bears and stars I'd made the night before was so awesome, Oliver and his play date just loved it and I hope to make it a yearly tradition.
