It is definitely starting to feel like Christmas around here! My daughter looked after the baking of some Christmas cookies while her brother and girlfriend looked after decorating the tree.
A favorite cookie in this household has always been "Smartie cookies". The cookbook calls them Frog Eyes but we have renamed them Smartie cookies. Since the kids were small we would make these cookies decorating them to reflect the season. You can buy Smarties and M&Ms coated in colours to match the seasons--Valentine's Day, Christmas, Easter, etc.
This my daughter baking Christmas Smartie cookies.
This is my son and his girlfriend decorating the tree.
