Actually, the correct word would be "iced." Very nearly "bedazzled."
Lookin' a little ditzy, as I knew they would. We're learning lots 'n lots about cut-out cookies, icing, and mixing colors. Katie told us about a friend who'd gone to culinary school and did NOT specialize in baking "because it's all chemistry!" Yeah. And there are so many variables! A big "Thank You" to everyone for their tips and shares for cut-out cookies. There's plenty more baking to do!
It was fun "goin' over to Kate's" last night with Ali to help decorate. She sure has a nice, big kitchen -- the lighting could be improved some, but that's a fairly easy fix. We flooded and piped 'til nearly 11, listening to two of our favorites for the holidays: Hanson's Snowed In, and The Chieftains' The Bells of Dublin. We also spun some Fleetwood Mac -- yep, vinyl -- a bunch of my most favorite LPs have found a new and loving home. I knew if I hung on to them long enough...
I think they are beautiful! I've got gingerbread dough chilling in the fridge and I've got to roll and bake and decorate myself.

Oh, those are gorgeous cookies! Spectacular! What a wonderful way to enjoy the holidays. (I still have my entire -- vast -- collection of vinyl LPs. I listen to them once in a while. . . because I have my old stereo equipment, too. Fun, huh? Although I do prefer the ease of the iPod. . .)

Those are beautiful- you are in a whole different cookie league than I am! I will never get to the Majors in the this sport. But still, I intend to mix up some dough tonight.
