This was fun

I bought this cookie mix because I like a variety of cookies, but I don't have time to make everything from scratch. The amount of cookies they make is just enough for my family and I always have a few to give away.

I looked forward to decorating them. I had to find a good frosting recipe, one that would harden but still taste good. After two tries I found one that was rather easy and tasted fine.

It took a few cookies before I decided on this cute look. I am now addicted to gingerbread cookies!

I packaged up a few to give to friends and my parents. Now, that I know I like making them and love decorating them I am going to find a better recipe, one from scratch.

Thanks for visiting!

I admire those who can use cookie cutters successfully. I am no good at it! Your "guys "are perfect!
