Christmas Cookies

Most of us celebrate Christmas on December 25. Not my family. Not this year. Today, the 21st, is the day. Things are so very different this year.

I made these cookies yesterday using Suzanne's recipe. My problem was that I had no snowflake cookie cutter and I couldn't find one while out shopping Saturday. So I thought to myself how tough could it be to create my own snowflake patterns? Tough. What a fright show and I am only showing you the best ones. Ha! Yes, I even had help.

Okay, must be something that I have to bake, clean or wrap. Catch you later...


  1. Enjoy your Christmas day!!! The gift of Christmas is with us everyday and that is truly the best part of it all.

  2. Have a very merry Christmas, Vee!

  3. Happy Christmas celebrating on Dec. 21st! Which date actually calls for a Happy Yule Wish too. :-)

    Lovely cookies... Yummmm...

    Enjoy your day...

    Did I say how wonderful it is, to have you back in Pretty Blog Land?!? Mmmm... Yes. I think I said that. ,-))))

    Even though you are still very, very busy in Real Life. Whatever you get the chance to share with us, is wonderful.

    Gentle hugs,
    Aunt Amelia

  7. I think your cookies look delicious. Our Christmas will certainly be different this year. I've never been on vacation during Christmas. I am so excited about the cruise. We leave in just a little while. :-)
    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  8. Wishing you peace and happiness, Vee.
