A little bit of baking...

Today I did a little bit of baking.. I bought a Christmas Cookie Tree Kit so thought I would make one to give away today. The kit contains five different size cookie cutters, the recipe for shortbread cookies, icing bags and two different size stands to assemble the tree.



The mixture was very easy to make and lots of fun to cut out.



This is how cool they looked when they were cooked - and smelt really yummy..




When they were cool I piled them up and joined them together with icing. I didn't use the stand as I want to keep that to use for myself and could hardly give it away then ask for it back!!




                                                   Ta dah!!



I thought this looked pretty damn good - even if I say so myself!

Oh My Gosh...
Suzy, I'd say this looks fantastic. Oh my gosh does it ever look good. That is just to darn cute. Where did you find the kit? I would like to buy one so that the grand daughters and I could make one of those. It looks like it is easy enough they could help, and would be so tasty too.

Thanks for sharing. I am clapping for you girl. You did GREAT!! Take a bow.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry
