Have a Little Cookie with Your Sprinkles

Today the kids and I made Christmas cut-out sugar cookies.  I let them help me roll the dough and create shapes of all sorts, including pumpkins, shamrocks, motorcycles, and butterflies.  (Not very Christmasy, but it works for us.)  When we were done with that, I put out the sprinkles and let them have fun decorating.  I walked away and did whatever I do. 

"We're done," they announced about fifteen minutes later.  "We used all the sprinkles!"

"What?" I asked.  "There were six full containers of sprinkles.  There's no possible way you used all of them!"

"Yeah, we did," said Bubba.  "Come and see."

I walked over to the cookies trays.  There on the table, were six empty sprinkle containers. On the trays were piles of sprinkles.  "Excuse me," I said, brushing some sprinkles to the side.  "Where are the cookies?" 

Bubba grinned.  "Buried.  They don't want to get burned!"

    1. I had to remove quite a few sprinkles, but they turned out just fine!

  2. The creative touch knows no bounds. The real question is how do they taste?

    1. They are really good! (Of course I had to remove a few sprinkles, or they would've never gotten off the baking sheets!)

    1. They do like sprinkles, don't they? Maybe even more than the cookies. ;)

  6. How cute! I made rum balls recently and was going to roll them in chocolate sprinkles, but they won't stick. I guess I'll have to eat them as they are. ;) My boys will be making cookies tomorrow, and knowing them, they'll want to get out EVERY cookie cutter we have!

    1. I'm glad my kids don't pull out every cookie cutter. That would be over 50 cookie cutters! Oy!

      Rum balls sound good. My mom used to make those. I haven't tried to make them myself. Enjoy!

      Merry Christmas!

  8. The Hurricane did our cookie baking. We can't be in the kitchen together, or we'll fight. We can no longer be in a car together either, so I'm not sure how she's getting back to the airport so she can go home because I'm certainly not keeping someone who shrieks over my perfect driving.

    Love,
    Janie
