It’s round two of Christmas in the Kitchen, featuring some of the coolest blogging chicks on the block! Each of us has a unique recipe, tradition or idea to share along with a great giveaway:
I am still in the Christmas Cookie spirit of things. This is a favorite tradition at our house, and over the years we’ve learned a trick or two, like:
-Frosting in a Can is a miraculous invention. My gingerbread now look like gingerbread instead of frosting upchuck. We still use the typical homemade frosting but with the canned variety in our arsenal, we are able to tackle the detail work without worrying about losing decorator tips or little hands having pastry bag explosions.
-Bulk candy is your friend. While we love the typical sprinkles and cookie toppings, raiding the bulk candy aisle has yielded us the most creative results. Like gingerbread with Twizzler hair and fruit roll-up scarves. It doesn’t hurt to purchase small portions of several different candy types. Then stand back and watch the magic…or is that sugar buzz?
Now onto the giveaway:
Old River Road Christmas Copper Cookie Cutter. This one is 6″ x 5″. Next to decorating gingerbread cookies, the kids and I love to see how many different ways we can come up with to decorate a cookie tree! I decided to give this one away because it’s the perfect size, and made in lovely copper!
Snowflake Metal Cookie Cutter Set – 8 pcs
I’ve never owned a set like this one, and I’m anxious to try it. Comes with five snowflake sizes and three cutouts to make cookies that look like this:
I almost don’t want to eat them…almost.
