Have a cookie day!
Instructions: make loads of sugar cookie dough ahead of time (or buy some)
Make lots of icing and have food coloring handy.
Have an array of sprinkles on hand.
Dig out grandma’s old cookie cutters.
Get out the rolling pin and the cookie press.
Invite some friends over.
Turn on the Christmas tunes and slip on your apron.
The point of this day is to make cookies and eat lots of them. Don’t over stress. Don’t try to make your home perfect for guests. Get ready to make a mess!
Note: When my girls got older, their cookie making got more serious and lots of other things appeared on the table-elaborate cookie trees made out of stars, different recipes, different shapes. As for the males? No, just give them a pile of cookies with lots of icing.
