Christmas Cookies~Cut outs~Day 7

Even though I have already shared my Sugar Cookie recipe with you, I thought it was worth repeating for the Christmas Cookie series. Yesterday, I hosted a Drop-In and Decorate.  Last month when I was visiting Bake at 350 blog, she invited bloggers to participate in a virtual Drop-In and Decorate, decorate Christmas cookies and donate them to a local charity.

We had fun baking and decorating the cookies. Here are some pictures from our day.

    Great post!! I’m still working on pictures so I can get my post up of DI&D party #1 we’ll be having our 2nd party this weekend!!

    I love that you got a picture of you making the donation – my first donation was to a domestic abuse shelter, so I couldn’t do much of that – I had to sign a confidentiality paper that I wouldn’t divulge their location. They were thrilled with the cookies too!

    Lucky you- you got help cutting out/baking too!! Isn’t it funny, they’re never too old to enjoy decorating cookies!!
