Cookie Recipes

No matter how old they are, kids of all ages love sugar cookies. The great thing about these is that they can be cut to any shape you want and decorated ( kids love to decorate thier own cookies).

We have parties around the holidays to make Halloween and Christmas cookies and let the children help to cut out the sugar cookie shapes and decorate them with thier favorite color icings or candy sprinkles.

You can even decorate Christmas cookies by painting them with food coloring or royal icing and make decorations for the Christmas tree from them!
