When my kiddos were small, making cut out cookies was something we did a couple of times a year. They enjoyed it. They’d pitch in and help and then get ready to go off to play before all the cookies were iced and I would finish a lot of them myself. I didn’t mind, because decorating the cookies was one of my crafty things.
We hadn’t made cut-outs for quite a while. They do take time and it seemed for a few years we were busy with other things. Moving and working on house and farm, back issues for me, school stuff, other creative hobbies….we just hadn’t!
Renae mentioned making them and coincidentally, I had been thinking about cut-outs, too.
They just sounded fun.
We found a few new sprinkles and pulled out our acorn and leaf cookie cutters and away we went.
It was a bit different from ten years ago. Or even five.
They rolled them out. Cut them out. Boom. Done.
I didn’t cut nary a cookie!
Colored icing and cookies and sprinkles!!! Love!!! So pretty.
Here’s a recipe we love and use!
