Day 12 – Decorate cookies. So this was the day we actually cut out and baked the cookies. The girls had a lot of fun. They are actually pretty good at arranging the cookies cutter to not waste space and need to re-roll the dough repeatedly. I had doubled the batch this year. Last year, I must have at least tripled it. While this is enough that they were tired by the end, it doesn’t make a lot of cookies to give away. I think we made about 36-48.
