Christmas Cookies and Memory

I love baking cookies. It’s one of those things I wish I did with the kids more, but I’m just not a very good baker. There are very few recipes that I can actually pull off because I’m not that great with details and baking is a science. Not really my forte.

And sometimes … just sometimes, we get it right, and tonight was one of those nights. One of my favorite bloggers also happens to share recipes that are so simple I can’t even mess them up. When Lisa shared on Instagram that she had a favorite frosted tea cookie recipe, I knew it was the cookie for me.

Once the cookies cooled, I frosted the cookies while the boys took turns adding sprinkles. Daddy kept Timmy from getting more frosting on the shaker than on the cookies, but that’s neither here nor there.

The only problem we found was that the cookie dough was so good, the boys were a little full by the time the finished product arrived on the table. 😉
