Christmas Card Cookies

Pin It

And now, for the real holiday this weekend…Black Friday! (Just kidding.) {Sorta.}

This is from our Christmas card last year. I don’t know where the idea came from…but I wanted to do something with food and this popped into my head.

I think the caption was something like “Don’t eat too many cookies this year!” or something like that.

I don’t think I’ve ever had as many comments on a card as I did from this one.

I’m off shopping this morning but I wanted to share something with you. If you haven’t started your Christmas card yet…I thought I’d give you an idea.

These cookies were made from a gingerbread mix and Wilton cookie icing. Once the icing dried I drew the bodies on using food writers. I use Creative Memories Storybook Creator for this sort of photo editing, but I assume Photoshop can do the same thing.

And no, I don’t stay up all night shopping. I value my sleep. I get up at my regular time and go after I’ve had a cup of coffee. I know I’m not getting any doorbusters. I go to get me into the Christmas spirit. Although I must say, I miss a few years ago when none of the stores opened until 6am. Gave me a fighting chance.

I’m not sure what I’m doing for a Christmas card this year. Somehow I have a feeling it won’t top last years’.

Have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see y’all next week with some yummy Christmas treats!
