Cookies Fit for a Tween!


My mom and I made these cookies together. It was our first time experimenting with royal icing. The icing hardens as it drys and doesn't come off. I helped cut the cookies with the cookie cutter and then helped decorate the cookies by piping on the icing. Then we sprinkled on these cute little x's and o's. We were going to make some other cookies shaped like little footballs for the Super Bowl, but while we were being silly, they were burning up in the oven. We didn't even need to add the brown icing because they were brown when they came out.

Cloudy with a Chance of Snowballs

I had to wait 3 days to build this snowman. On the first day, the snow was too powdery. On the second day, it was only sticky in certain places. So, on the third day, the snow was perfect for snowman building. I built him all by myself.

And his name is...

Here is a picture of me too!
