Come to the Dark Side, We Have Cookies! by KatherineReedKS Come to the Dark Side, We Have Cookies! by KatherineReedKS
Every year my mother and I bake and decorate Christmas cookies for family and friends! I've enjoyed doing it with her ever since I was a little kid. I've also eaten my share of cookie dough around this time of year :)

This is a Christmas tradition that I will continue to do with my mother and plan to continue with my children if and when I ever have them.

Just last year we started making 3D cookies by having them crisscross each other somewhere to make a base they can stand on. This makes them very easy to break but also very fun to display! These usually get eaten last :)

The reindeer all have legs but they weren't ready for the picture so I just put some standing, some with legs showing how they are put on, and some legless because they just were not ready yet :)

Go ahead and tell me your favorite Christmas traditions!

These are impressive! I usually always make gingerbread around christmas too, but nothing so extensive. I'd come to the dark side for these. :)

Christmas is well gone, but felt like sharing anyway

every December (except this past one sadly)
my mom's family gets together (aunts, uncles, cousins...) at my grandparents house,
and in two days we bake and decorate 2000+ christams cookies

(btw, your 3D cookies are so cool!)

Fun may not be the right word... :D It was a time for reflection and refocusing - which can be a really good thing in all the bustle. I hope you enjoyed your Christmas as well! Happy New Year to you!

Sounds about right :) Some people just don't sit down and enjoy the holidays so I'm glad you got a chance to relax. I had a very merry Christmas :)
