Decorated Christmas Cookies

They say it is the most wonderful time of the year and I have to agree. There is something magical in the air at Christmas. People are friendlier, the decorations are gorgeous, we think of others as we look for the perfect gifts, we get to spend time we spend with family and friends and we bake a lot of decorated Christmas cookies to show people how much we care.

I love baking Christmas cookies because it is a gift that shows you took time to make something special. Baking and decorating doesn’t have to be hard or even perfect for that matter. You just need to use a good cookie recipe, a good royal icing recipe and a few cookie cutters to have fun baking up some cute characters and iconic Christmas images like these decorated Christmas cookies I am sharing with you today.
