Double posting today.....I'm on a cookie roll!....Packed up a gift box for a neighbor...then decided to try these...

I like how these present themselves....eye catching, don't you think?
Have you made these before? The origionals have circles cut out in the center...I had these tiny tree cutters...

Any sugar cookie recipe would work...Rasberry Preserves and lots of sifted Powdered sugar...What's not to like!...

This was the first time trying these...I think we have a winner here!...Very tasty! Hope your Monday was right up there!, xoxo~Kathy


  1. Kathy...Your neighbor is soooo lucky to be getting such a great box of homemade goodies. They all look wonderful. Your house must smell wonderful. Are you sure you aren't part elf? Have a wonderful Christmas...Rosemary

  2. Wow... how yummy!
    We had our marathon baking session yesterday and when I came home from my moms my hubby said I smelled like a bakery LOL
    Enjoy and Merry Christmas

  3. I love cookie baking..these look a bit like Linzers..oh they look would be so nice to have tea or coffee together munching on these..Lovely neighbour you are!!!

  4. Those tree cut out raspberry cookies look wonderful. Almost too pretty to eat! Your lucky neighbors! Merry Christmas!

  5. What a wonderful gift package for your neighbors. I love getting them myself!! ;-)

    The Christmas tree cut outs look delightful and I bet they are just yummy!!

    Happy holidays, Kathy!!


  6. These look just beautful!!! Great job!
    By the way did you know you can now make your navbar transparent instead of blue to match you page.

  7. What a wonderful gift for your neighbor. These look so delicious.... I'm off tomorrow so I'm going to get busy baking.. can't bake way too far ahead I'll eat all of From our home to ours a Very Merry Christmas..
    hugs ~lynne~

  8. You've certainly been a busy 'elf', Kathy ... how blessed those are to taste these lovely creations. Merry "Michigan' Christmas!

  9. I hear ya, sugah!!! I keep having elves show up at my door dropping of candyyyyyyyy!! I'm gonna burst soon......

  10. Kathy your cookies look just beautiful!

    I hope you don't mind me making a suggestion here on your beautiful blog, but I think it would help if you reduced the number of posts on your home page to 7 or so. As it is now, there are over 250 pics to download before we can see your current post and it takes forever. I love to come and look but sometimes have to leave it's taking so long!

    I know your neighbors loved the cookies! :)

  11. You have a gift for composing your pictures. Yummy looking cookies!

  12. Oh Yum, very pretty and tasty looking Kathy! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  13. These look positively scrumptious! I would love receiving a box of goodies such as this. No one made me cookies- Either I am unloved or I have friends for whom the art of baking is non-existent... LOL I hope you have a very Happy Holiday Season, Kathy. Big hugs, Sue

  14. You make me want to call in today and stay home and BAKE!

  15. Merry Christmas to you my friend and a very happy new year

  16. Merry Christmas to you all ...
    Sharon...Navbar is Transparent! How do you like it?...
    Betsy...Thanks for bringing that to my attention...I will knock the posts numbers down a little...I find the same thing with the snow widgets on others blogs...really slows the scrolling. There are so many fun things to use on our blogs but the side effects sometimes are just not worth it.
    Lynn...Have fun baking on your day off!

    Merry Christmas dear ones, xoxo~Kathy

  17. It looks great!!! I bet you like it better too.
    Yes I have tryed several wigets and found they really slow things down. The snow is the worst.
    I don't think you have to many post showing. But large pictures can slow things down. But every ones computer is differentin how they see them, so you can't please every one. Just do what works for you.

    It does load slowly though. But you are worth it!! God Bless, Sharon

  18. They are indeed little works of art, Kathy! I haven't baked one cookie this holiday season. Think I'm just lazy or turning in Scrooge...

  19. Your cookies look amazing!

    I wanted to let you know how grateful I am that our paths crossed this year. I adore your warm, friendly and caring spirit and thank you for sharing a bounty of loveliness with me. Wishing you and your family a joyous and Merry Christmas!

    Love and hugs,

  20. All your cookies are so pretty! I love the cut out trees. Can I be your neighbor and get a box? I love the "bacon and egg" cookies too. SO cute! Merry Christmas!


Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me...I am always encouraged by your kind expressions and thoughtful comments....Know that you are loved....xoxo Kathy.
