Christmas Cookies!

On Saturday night, I enjoyed a sleepover with our niece, Reagan. As any Christmas-time sleepover should, we made and decorate Christmas cookies!

I took the lazy easy route and used the pre-blended sugar cookie mixture by Betty Crocker. Just add butter and an egg!

The first batch we did drop cookies (which requires more butter). We rolled them in our hands and then into colored sugar.

Note: If you decorate before baking, you must use sugar! If you try to do this with regular sprinkles, they will melt in the oven.

We rolled the dough and used cookie cutters for the second batch. With the help of of my sister-in-law, Jessica, and the extra cookie cutters she brought, we had plenty of shapes to choose from! We baked those cookies and as they cooled, we went to pick up Chinese food (because what else do you eat during a girls' night?). 

After they cooled, Reagan brushed them with pasteurized egg whites and while they were sticky, we doused them with more colored sugar!

They turned out beautiful, and more importantly, delicious!

Until next time - -
