Crazy for Christmas Cookies!

We went a little cookie crazy for Christmas... we baked 3 types of cookies to take with us to Dallas! There are lots of photos with this post because cookies are just so photogenic!

First was classic sugar cookies. They aren't really the most exciting tasting cookies, but they are very pretty when decorated. To make the taste a little more interesting we added some lemon zest in some and orange zest in some. I think the lemon zest worked better, but they were both an improvement. We mixed all 3 of the doughs one day, then left them in the fridge overnight and rolled out the cookies the next day. This is maybe the 2nd time I have used the big rolling pin and the first time I used my new cookie cutters. :-)

Then we made chewy gingerbread cookies and added some frosting to both:

And finally, we added the dark chocolate mint chip cookies to the mix. These were delicious! :)
Merry Christmas!
