Christmas Sweeties

I just realized how long it's been since I've posted!! Wow, sorry!! Busy, busy, busy. . . I'm sure you can all relate! Here are a couple shots of some Christmas baking I have done. I promise much more to come in the next week, plus I will share some of my favorite Christmas recipes with you!
Christmas sugar cookies for my daughters preschool class to celebrate her 5th birthday! Not my absolute best work, but considering I FORGOT about bringing them, ran home and slapped them together before preschool was over that day, I think they are ok. I know, who does that!?!?! My poor child. . . I tried to talk her into some easy cutsie cupcakes, but she is proud of her December birthday and wanted to celebrate Christmas style!

From left to right, Gingerbread cupcake with luscious, light, lemon frosting, Peanut Butter Kiss (you've already seen this one, I know) and Eggnog!

What is it with our family and sugar cookies? Just looking at those makes me want to go home and make some, maybe I should just pay you to make them and mail them to me! haha! Love the pink snowflakes especially!

That's "slapped together?" I'm impressed! They look amazing. I bet she really appreciated them. The eggnog and gingerbread cupcakes look lucious! Is it rude to ask how you made the light lemon frosting? I'd love to try it.

Not at all, I love to share recipes! This one will surprise you! I got it from


3 oz. pkg. Jello
2/3 c. sugar
1 egg white
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. boiling water

Combine first 4 ingredients and then pour in the boiling water. Beat at high speed 5 minutes until of spreading consistency. This is very light similar to a boiled 7 minute frosting. Use the flavor of Jello that suits your palate.

The sugar cookies are so cute. I made over 50 shaped sugar cookies this week and man it was a chore! Fun at first though. LOL
