To satisfy myself and handily make many cookies at once, I baked some cookie sheet cookies! They were made using a sugar cookie recipe and iced with gray royal icing. A playing card was used as the template for the mini cookie sheets. I also used some silver luster dust to make the cookie sheets look more authentic. After it dried I attached the mini "cookies" with royal icing.
And look at all the "cookies"! There's candy cane cookies, gingerbread men, and sugar cookies! All of the "cookies" are made with either jumbo sprinkles, or pre-made (purchased) icing decorations. For the snowmen "sugar cookies", I decorated the jumbo white sprinkles with edible markers. How easy is that?
Making these did help me feel a lot better about not making the larger, "real" version of all my favorite Christmas cookies:) Try it; they're very easy and fun! I think they look pretty cute too.
All eight of my munchkins, together at last!

(I wish I could post this photo "extra large", but it won't fit in the format, and cuts off two of my munchkins! I hope Santa was listening when I told him I wanted a professional blog makeover for Christmas!)
As cute as the cookies are, the cuteness factor of my munchkins far exceeds them (grandmas have bragging rights ya know:)) We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
I'd like to thank each one of you for your friendship and support! I had no idea that this blog would bring with it so many rewards:) Food bloggers are some of the nicest people on the planet! I look forward to continued association with all of you in 2012!
A real gingerbread boy:)
See you next year!
