mess

my kitchen currently looks like this
I got the great idea to give my English students a small Christmas gift and thought, "what say Christmas and American better than homemade cookies?!?".

So I turned to the fabulous Bridget over at Bake@350 for inspiration and found these beauties




I'd made royal icing cookies one other time using Bake@350 for inspiration so I knew they'd be delicious

 Too bad I forgot how long the process is!  I spent a lot of time making cookies, but they turned out fabulous and when I gave the 1st box to a student today she was absolutely thrilled so in the end, it was all worth it!



Mine look nothing like Briget's but I'm really proud of them, especially the ornament cookies!



If you've never checked out Bridget's blog, you should really do so.  She's the queen of icing cookies as far as I'm concerned!
