Pastel Chistmas Cookie Collection 

I really enjoyed decorating all my Christmas cookies in soft pastel colors this year. I was so glad not to have to mix up dark red and greens this Christmas. Here is my Christmas cookie roundup for 2013! Thank you to Glory of www.glorioustreats.com for her cute snowman face tutorial using an ornament cutter. He ended up being one of my favorite cookies.

Gingerbread Love

I made  gingerbread cookies in bright fun colors for my Bunco group.  My friend Wendi was the hostess this month and she decorated our Bunco party with the cutest gingerbread decor. There were gingerbread things everywhere! I just had to share some of the cuteness at her house along with my cookies.

In addition to gingerbread cookie  boys and girls I made candy shaped cookies in Snickerdoodles flavor with caramel icing. Everyone gave this new recipe  from my friend Nicole of Sweet Temptations by Nicole a big thumbs up. She was so sweet she even sent me the caramel extract from Texas since I could not find it in Southern California.

Christmas 2011

Here is my collection of Christmas cookies from 2011. My favorite was the elf shoe. I found that cutter on a shopping trip to IKEA. It was in a cute set and a great find.  I also really liked the pastel colors for Christmas. I am not a fan of dark icing, it stains your teeth and can bleed into light colors.
