Hey there everyone, This weekend I finished decorating the Christmas tree, I put up a few Christmas decorations and the atmosphere in the house changed to a much cozier, warmer feel. I still have a few more things to do but I should be finished soon. (Love all these colorful lights)
I made a small batch of Butter Christmas Cookies yesterday, but I wanted to decorate the cookies with something Christmassy. I searched for decorating ideas and found this Christmas light decoration on Pinterest which I thought was cute from dessertsfortwo.com. The decoration on this bloggers cookies is different, she used M&Ms where I used sprinkles to make it a bit more colorful. I did not have any powdered sugar so I made the topping with White and Pink Fondant Icing, the cookie recipe is great because I have been making these each Christmas.
I gave it a few tries before the cookies looked decent enough to post hahahha. I did send a photo to my Pastry Chef friend and she liked it, so I guess I did a good job on my first try in decorating cookies. 🙂
Have a great week everyone!!!
