Christmas Cookies

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and a fabulous start to 2013!  I can't believe were in our second week of January and I haven't done a post yet!

This was meant to be a post over the holidays, but time slipped away....

I love Christmas baking - the process, the sharing, and of course, the eating! I always look forward to making my list of what to bake - cookies, squares, balls, bark...  So many options.  I have my go to recipes but I like to try new ones each year.  

I used my tried and true Canadian Living Sugar Cookie recipe with Meringue Powder Royal Icing.  This icing really allows you to decorate your cookies beautifully.  It hardens nicely so you can store them without worrying about smudging them.  My girls love sugar cookies.  I don't think it's the taste as much as the look that they love (and all the icing!).  What kid doesn't choose a beautifully decorated sugar cookie when they have a special treat at the bakery?


Just looking at these pictures of my Belgium cookies makes me want to make more!  They are so delicious!  I will have to post this recipe next time.  I finally found a great one, thanks to a friend of mine.  She is an amazing baker and makes these cookies perfectly!

I'm sure most people have seen enough of Christmas Baking now that it's January!  I'll save the rest of these recipes for December!


  1. how do you decorate them so perfectly! they were also delicious by the way :)
