Challenge: Countdown to Christmas - X



X for "Xtra" effort!  ;-)

Someone posted a photo of these cookies on Facebook recently:


Aren't they so cute?

Well, after a little
-tra effort,
I came up with a somewhat reasonable facsimile . . .



They used a different type of frosting.
I couldn't do fancy things like bow ties...
Does anyone have the recipe for the proper "fancy frosting?"




Counting Down!!
It's Almost Christmas!!

Sorry I've not been in for a while - it's been somewhat hectic here in preparation for the marauding hordes (my family!) descending tomorrow for a few days ...I can't wait!

Thank you for your friendship, your lovely comments on my blog and for your great posts and I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year!
