Cookie Day 2010

This will probably be my last post of the year since New Year's is coming up.  And we do plan on just a little celebrating!  But I had to get in some pictures of Cookie Day.  I think I explained before that it is a family tradition on my Italian side to make Christmas cookies and deliver them to our neighbors.  No matter where we are, we all work out a day to make cookies, then we call and check on each other's progress.  It's a fun tradition!  Here's some pic:
Get ingredients together
Mix up a batch
Knead the dough
Roll out the snakes to wrap around your finger
Trays ready to go in the oven
Frosting and decorating the cookies
Finger cookies!   (Hey Matilda!  Do you know what these are called in Italian?)
 Decorated sugar cookies
And there we have them all ready to batch up and go!
Happy New Year to you all!  May you all be healthy and happy!
