Those are cute~! If you use the gel coloring by Wilson, you will get a richer color without putting too much water in your dough from liquid coloring.


My kid (14) would have his cookies and cocoa and then leave alone with the tree!
Love your colored cookies!!


Is there nothing you can't do??!! The decoratings are just gorgeous and those cookies look like they came from a magazine!! Merry Christmas!! xoxo


Maybe I should have said "Is there 'anything' you can't do...." LOL


I like your cookies better! Haha...

those cookies are AWESOME. i was sure you bought them. wow.


Michelle, thank you for posting these! I have diligently been staying away from pinterest (like the plague) because i just have too much to do - and i know once i get on there, i might lose weeks (maybe months?) LOL !! These cookies look fantastic! The kids and I are definitely going to try a couple batches this weekend! woohoo!! Thank you!! <3 Oh.. and by the way... this post cracked me up - having to bribe the kids!! Mine are begging WHEN are we going to decorate the tree MOM??!! About 3 times a day every day starting on Thanksgiving! We're lucky to get the tree up by about the 10th and they are chompin at the bit! LOL
