Christmas is for Giving

I have packaged my sugar cookie stars with evergreen boughs and giving them to co-workers rather than cards.  These were so much fun to make that they will be on my agenda next year, too.  People are so delighted to receive them and I loved giving them.  See this post for the recipe and instructions to make them.  They kept very well decorated in my cold room.  Do not freeze after decorating but the cookie keeps well before icing.

  1. How nice! To take the time to make something and give it as a gift is very special. It is giving of one's self. The cookies are lovely I am certain your thoughtfulness was appreciated!

  2. What a lovely idea, Sarah... so much better than a card... something to eat with an evergreen. I haven't baked a cookie yet... but did do my Plum Pudding... I can't wait to hear how your aged version taste... must be amazing!!!
