Cookies and Icing

Cookies and christmastime seem to go together. People like cookies, guests like cookies, santa likes cookies – making this time of year the best time to whip out your go-to cookie recipes.

While snowboarding this past weekend, the group I went with were fortunate enough to have two highly motivated cooks (neither was me, btw) who helped make the saturday evening feast (beef bourginon -sp?-) as well as dozens and dozens of cookies.

On the big cookie-making night, we had a roaring fire going, the oven was hot, and the football game was on. The girls were rolling out and cutting sugar and gingerbread cookie dough into snowflakes, nutcrackers, snowmen, etc. What were the guys doing during all the cookie making?

playing (or learning to play in some cases) dominoes.

As you can tell by the picture above, the cookies were even iced with a homemade icing!

At some point between saturday and sunday, someone took the remainder of the red icing, and vandalized a plate of cookies. Possibly to make sure we knew the snowmen, nutcrackers, and doves were all male. Enjoy!
