Christmas cookies are baked, decorated, and packaged! Here is the first several cookies that I made this holiday season. And I know that people like to save the best for last, but these are definitely my favorite this year, and one of the best I have ever made. I love the vibrant colors and how festive they look. When first made them I couldn't stop looking at them or taking photos. Mr. Apron kindly reminded me that they will be eaten and not to get too attached.
I think what why I love these cookie so much is because I really can see such an improvement on my decorating skills since last christmas. I find looking at a beautiful batch of cookies that I decorated incredibly rewarding.
I made the ornanments using wet on wet icing. I have tried this technique before, but I hadn't quite prefected it. But this time, I know I got it right!
