I am only showing pictures tonight since I am running behind on EVERYTHING. The following pictures are from the Grandchildren's last Christmas cookie baking. My new kitchen is pretty small so I divided the grandchildren up by cousins rather than siblings. May do it again this year. I have the best Christmas cookie recipe I will share with you as well. Grandma called them tea cakes.
|Blake and Konstance.|
They're great friends and cousins.
|Cousins Rachel and Sierra. They are so much alike.|
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 and 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup shortening
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
I usually have the dough chilled when grandchildren arrive and they do the cutting and sprinkling with sugar.
Now I need to get to catching up on all of your posts. I don't want to miss anything. Although....I am becoming a little intimidated by all your lovely pictures of your Christmas decorating and I have done none so far.
