Baking some Christmas cookies is as fun as decorating the Christmas tree with DIY embellishments. Christmas baking is so enjoyable, especially with different Christmas shaped cookie cutters and the authentic aroma that fills the kitchen.
Though Christmas cake, how to decorate the cake using icing comes to your mind when you think about baking for Christmas, cookies are equally entertaining (and yum!).
During my school days, all the Christmas cookies looked the same – either round or square shaped. Though the taste was authentic, it is more fun to bake the Christmas cookies now with the introduction of cute cookie cutters and amazing frosting ideas.
Kids are going to absolutely love them – not just eating but the process of baking as well! All you need to do is roll the dough and it would be a fun activity for kids to cut the dough using cookie cutters in the shapes of stars, Christmas tree, umbrella, bells, santa claus etc.

Icing – the best part!

I know the hardest part in baking is the waiting – that time when the entire house would be filled with the sweet sugar and butter aroma and you cannot wait to open the oven! But good things come to those who wait; while the cookies are getting done, get some food colours and get busy in preparing the frosting.
