Christmas Cookies – Part I

Every Christmas I have plans to make intense gingerbread and sugar cookies. I have ideas of intricate piping and using sprinkles, buy silver balls and fondant. Of course, pill I get lazy and opt to do loose swirls which resemble a Jackson Pollock painting rather than anything festive.

Today while Christmas shopping on Etsy I came across Whipped Bakeshop. Below are just a few examples of her magical abilities with cookies.

Santa-saurus Rex cookie set.

Winter Wonderland cookie set.

Deluxe Ugly Christmas Sweater cookie set.

Gingerbread Snowflake cookie set.

Those are just some of my favourites in her shop but she has much more to choose from including Hanukkah cookies. Use these cookies as inspiration for your own baking or a yummy gift idea for a friend!

More holiday inspiration and yums to come! Happy munching!
