Christmas Cookies with C(K)atheryn

Another back-dated post
Some mom-daughter time with Katheryn.

She is so interested in baking – she loves making those little Pillsbury dough boy cookies, the ones where you just stick them on the pan. I had such a craving for those when I was pregnant with Nickolas – and couldn’t find them anywhere.

I thought it would be fun to make some shape cookies together. I used to do a lot of Christmas baking when I was in school (nothing like putting off studying for finals by making dozens and dozens of cookies).
I will admit that I did cheat a bit. The dough isn’t from scratch – but more of that Pillsbury frozen dough stuff. But it got the job done!

Katheryn really liked that she could make whatever shapes she wanted!


And we can make any Christmas shape we want!


And Katheryn's favorite Christmas shape!
A hippopotamus!!

All in the oven for baking

While those were baking - we decided to build a train!
(please ignore the well-lived-in background)

 One thing about the train.
It kept melting on me!

A little time spent outside soon fixed that
Who knew we could do our Christmas baking with the backdoor open because it was too hot?!

We got the appropriate appreciation for our design

Then more decorating!
OK by this time Katheryn was no longer interested in our mother-daughter time.
She really just wanted to get dirty and/or eat some cookies

The kids had their very own cookies to eat!

Yummy, yummy, yummy!
