Christmas Cookies!

We braved the blizzards and icy road this weekend to make it home to bake and decorate Christmas cookies at grandma's house!
Yummy thumbprints and yummier sugar cookies!
Grandma painstakingly decorated these two beauties! That is raw talent (and lots of patience!)
My contribution...candy cane kisses. You can find the recipe on the back of the Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses bag. Pretty and delicious!!
So pretty...almost too nice to eat- but we'll get over it :)

Storing my batch in my Snowflake divided casserole! Yay for finding a resourceful use for those darn divided dishes!
And here's a glimpse of the tree at our apartment.

 And some of my favorite owl ornaments:

 Trying to enjoy every moment of this holiday season, because truly in the blink of an eye it's over!

Now please excuse me while I go enjoy some cookies and milk !

OMG. Me want cookies! I made snickerdoodles over the weekend. Yummy! Love your owl ornaments. I'm giving my BF's mom an owl ornament for Christmas. She loves owls too :)

I know what you mean...I love the divided casserole dishes but what in the world are you supposed to use them for??? I love your idea of putting cookies in them! :)

Oh. my. god. I NEED cookies now!! Those look delicious! I'm getting together with my BFF on Friday for our annual cookie and fudge bake off and now I'm feeling very inspired! I wish I could do piping work like Grandma. I'm so bad at it I just have to stick with straight icing.

*Dying for Cookies*

@Flo- Grandma actually did the "piping" with sprinkles and tweezers!! I didn't have nearly enough patience for that :)
