A family bake-a-ton turned event, where all my kiddos enjoy making them with me. We like to all gather up in our big kitchen, put on some Christmas music on which puts everyone in a Christmas mood, humming tunes and shaping all kinds of different shapes of these little cuties.
They are simply butter cookies, shaped with a cookie dough press. These cookies just simply melt in your mouth. Add a cup of ice cold milk, kick up your feet and there is no other way to enjoy a wintery, snowy day by the crackling fireplace.
