Christmas Trees

I really should not be allowed to make cut-out cookies. This I know from experience. And yet I tried again. At one point I was posting frustrated messages to Anna, looking for support, not sure if I wanted to scream or cry. Some stuck to my silicon rolling mat. Some I rolled too thin. Some I rolled too thick. Some morphed into blobs while they baked. A few turned out fine. When the whole batch was done, I had a small freezer bag of cookies to decorate and a large bag on which I wrote "less pretty trees". Gary and Doris ate those.

I looked everywhere for Decorator's Icing for Little Hands, but to no avail. I procrastinated decorating as long as possible. Today I finally enlisted Gary's help and he was much better at maintaining steady pressure to outline them. After the outlines were set, I filled them in, and after that set, I played with stars.

I like the most whimsical stars the best.

Before I read the entire post, I said to myself "those stars are so whimsical-looking", I think they look beautiful:)
