hello jacqueline:: i love your mini cookie cutters and the playful santa too! i hope you have a great weekend as the forecast here is a major snow storm!


ooo, edible gifts are always wonderful! Home baked goods especially are fantastic to receive as handmade gifts. I like Alton Brown recipes - perhaps because I like his Food Network show of explaining the science in cooking as well. I have his DVD of holiday cookie recipes, but you can find plenty online too, like this one http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/chocolate-peppermint-pinwheel-cookies-recipe4/index.html


Cute set of cookie cutters! My husband's favorite Christmas cookies are these sugar cookie cut-outs, so I have to make some too. I love to frost and decorate them with sprinkles. Enjoy your baking adventures!


How cute that little Santa is! Have fun with your baking.


Oh and by the way, thank you for the kind words you wrote about my family! I am pretty proud of them!



Mini things are favorites of mine and that includes cookies. Love your little cookie cutters - and your cookies will be a big hit I'm sure. My mom's friend bakes cookies of all sorts for all her friends and family every year. We always enjoy receiving them and looking forward to her visit when she drops them off. Everyone sits down for cookies and coffee & catches up about the year. Hugs ~ Lori


Good luck Jacqueline I hope they turn out yummy and pretty. Gifts like that are so much sweeter than some of the store bought kind.
Happy Holidays!


Yummmmmmm....I agree baking cookies and giving them as gifts really does show someone how much you love them. Happy baking!

thanks for entering the giveaway. I don't think very many people actually read my post LOL...there are only like 7 comments for 2 e pattern bundles..hmm by the 22nd...doubt there will be more than 10! you have good odds.


I made some great cut-out cookies last week. I bought a sugar cookie mix, and followed the directions on package - to add more flour and less butter. Rolled, cut and washed with egg white mixed with water. Sprinkled on sparkling sugar before baking. They were great and I didn't have to worry. I cheated a little with the mix, but I had no stress and everyone enjoyed them.


The best season of all!! Definetly :D

Love your cutters!
Last year I made gingerbreads but.. I didn't like them =/ I'm still looking for that special and really gooood recipe! ;)


Hey darling! Keep enjoying the homemade holidays for a lil longer before you put your heart into that wonderful tutorial,k? It's the holidays all around the world.

You know, I was thinking that that was a smart idea. Maybe someday you and I should post a tutorial that you give me and I try to do on our blogs??

Let me know!


Love the cookie cutters too; they look really cute. And I definitely agree with you that the best gift are made. It has a personalized touch. A gift from the heart.
