Tis the season
It's time to let the Christmas festivities start in our house. This week? Baking. Caleb and I have been baking up a storm. Sugar cookies, muffins, and yesterday-- gingerbread. My favorite. I used this recipe. It is hands down the BEST gingerbread recipe I've ever tried. And the instructional videos help too :)
So last night I somehow got it into my head that I should pipe and flood these cookies instead of just smearing on the icing-- my more typical approach to icing cookies. So I got to work... and somewhere along the way I managed to convince Doug to help me. At one point he looks at me and says, "who really has time to do this anyways?" I start laughing. "Obviously me."
As time consuming as it was-- they sure look pretty-- if I do say so myself!
So... now that we've got the cookies... I think it's time to pull out the decorations... tis the season!!
