Christmas Cookies 2008

Kasey and her friend Callie wanted to enter the 4-H Christmas Cookie Competition so included my younger daughter, Korey, and we made a day of it.

We made the dough from scratch. They each selected cookie cutters and helped cut the cookie dough. Once the cookies were baked and cooled, we made the icing. They decided on a color palette and I mixed the colors for them.

I demonstrated to them how to use a piping bag to outline the cookies and then how to flood them using squeeze bottles and toothpicks. They had a lot of fun and the cookies turned out really cute.

Kasey got the blue ribbon and her friend, Callie, got second place!
