Welcome friend! I'm so glad you have joined me here at Dreaming of Homemaking. I like to think of this blog as my journal, full of ideas that have helped me turn my house into a warm, welcoming home. My hope is that you too find this little piece of the internet a place to gather ideas and find inspiration.
Baking Christmas cookies brings back so many memories of my childhood, and it has been so nice to be able to continue the tradition with our kids! While the recipe may not be the same ( those were a little crunchy for me) I will be sharing the one we use! I am excited to share with you not only our favorite cookie recipe but all the things we love in the kitchen, plus a few tips I learned along the way! ( If you have been following me you know I am very new to baking/cooking – so come learn along with me!)
For the cookie recipe we followed Jenny Cookies recipe for her famous Sugar Cookies HERE. This has been my favorite that I have found! Zoe loves being able to sit in these chairs from The Mine while she bakes, I always get so may questions about them so you can click on the link HERE.
We thought it would be fun to show a little video while we made cookies, it was Zoe’s request!
This was Zoe’s first time using a kitchen aid, she really had so much fun – I think it was her favorite part!
Once the dough was finished, we rolled into a ball, then we flattened it to go into the fridge! You can set in for 10 minutes, or up to 7 days!
Now time to start cutting out the cookies, we cleaned our space and then started to put flour down! Rosie wanted to join in on the fun!
I love this copper angel cookie cutter I found at The Found Cottage to match my canisters from The Mine!
Now its time to Bake these cookies, and we will be using the made from scratch frosting from Jenny Cookies you can find the recipe HERE!
Time for the cookie decorating with this crazy bunch! ( The boys were so happy to be able to decorate and even happier when we informed them they get their own cookies to eat) Here is a fun video of the decorating including my husband joining in on the fun!
We hope you enjoyed this little video of our family, here are a few more photos of our cookie decorating!
Everyone had such a fun time, there may have been dancing and singing not pictured… cookies were passed out to the neighbors one of the kids favorites to do! ( Don’t worry they were the ones made by the adults)
Thanks for joining us! More to come soon! Let us know what your favorite cookie recipe is!
