Festive Cookies by claremanson Festive Cookies by claremanson
Last weekend there was an epic baking session of over 40 sugar cookies being made as Christmas gifts for my kids school and playschool. By the end of the day my kitchen was in complete chaos. It was all worth it though I still have another 30 in the freezer yet to be baked!

I decided to make four different kinds of sugar cookies, all with very Christmas flavours for my country. 
:bulletgreen: Half dipped 1/4 of the cookies in melted Terry's chocolate orange and added some Holly sprinkles. 
:bulletgreen: Half dipped 1/4 of the cookies in white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed candy canes, running a little low on white chocolate I also made some with the white chocolate just drizzled on top with the candy canes. 


I knew I would have a lot of work to do so I decided to make half the cookies have the flavours inside so I wouldn't have to decorate all of them else I would have gone mad. 
:bulletgreen: 1/4 Dried
cranberry with white chocolate chips
:bulletgreen: 1/4 Dark chocolate chips with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

You must be really passionate about baking to take the time to decorate so neatly and precisely so many cookies! I'm very impressed, they look great and seem delicious!
