There’s nothing like a little Christmas Cookie baking to get you into the spirit of the Holidays… Especially if the aromatic atmosphere is just so: Candles lit, wearing your Pajamas, listening to Carols or playing your favorite Christmas Movies in the backgroud (i.e. Chevy Chase’s Christmas Vacation, Elf, White Christmas…) Who’s with me? This week my mom is visiting to enjoy an early Christmas avec moi, and we have been indulging in the decadence of December ever since her early arrival. Think Sleeping in, Late Morning Brunches and cozy slippers, decorating the Tree and opening gifts, browsing through recipes and baking our holiday hearts out. Below, enjoy a small preview of Sugar Cookie Perfection.

Oh the brilliance of a buttery batter and cookie cutters that bring back the joy of Christmas’ past…
Sheets of Snowmen and SnowFlakes and Sugar, oh my!
Et voila! Good luck stopping at one…

A lovely glass of cold milk, a plate of cookies, and your golden…Santa knows what’s up, why wait until the 25th?  ~p.e.
