Chanukah Cookies

Part 1
I love finding cookie cutters for different holidays! Here is my latest holiday creation...some Chanukah Gingerbread cookies...Happy Chanukah!

Follow the recipe for making gingerbread cookies or sugar cookies and let cool before icing and decorating.

Even Lucas wanted to eat his own cookie!
"Mommy, this cookie is yummy!"

Part 2
At the beginning of the week, my student Rebecca's
mom came to school to deliver a special gift. 

To my surprise, she brought me freshly baked and decorated Chanukah Sugar Cookies! Boy do my students know me well.  Between shoes and baking, these kids have got me all figured out!

What a fantastic surprise! 
Aren't these cookies just gorgeous? 

 They are just a little bit nicer than mine!

And...they tasted even better than they looked!
Oh oh!  There I go...eating away.
Love the buttery taste.  It is so sinful, yet so delicious!

As a gift with these delicious cookies, I also received The Cookie and Biscuit Bible.
I will most definitely be trying some of the new recipes over the holidays!

Happy baking!
