Cookies and Freebie Images what more can you ask for!

I manage to get a double batch of my Christmas cut-out cookies made and frosted (click HERE to see recipe). That's about as artsy as I've had time for. I use a simple frosting taught to me by my mom. It's just powdered sugar, vanilla (or flavored extract) and a tablespoon or two of warm water. There are no measurements its just adding warm water and mixing with the powdered sugar until you get the consistency you want. I like mine to be thin enough that it self levels yet not too runny! I mix up a large bowl of white and then spoon some of it into smaller bowls and add food coloring to the smaller bowls. To me its the least messy of cookie frostings (except when frosting LOL) it doesn't stay gooey and hardens enough that you can stack them.


Here's the first couple of batches, mmmm!


Yes, I admit it I'm a messy baker!

  1. Mmmm, I love sugar cookies and I've made that sort of frosting/glaze but it's been years. They look so inviting and Christmas-y.

  2. The cookies look delicious. You're very generous with your reipe and free images - you certainly have the Christmas spirit.


  3. Thanks, Aileen, love the images, I saved three into my "vintage beauties" folder. Thanks for sharing! Barb V.
