Homemade Sugar Cookies

One of our traditions is to make my mom's homemade sugar cookies with cream cheese frosting.

 I let the kids roll the dough out

on my fantastic Roul 'Pat Pastry Mat.
If you bake, you must own one.
The dough rolls out perfectly, doesn't stick and the mat is easy to clean.

Then the kids take turns with the cookie cutters

and usually sometime the next day, we frost them and sprinkle them with green and red sugar.

Then we put them in tins and drive around 

delivering them to our friends.
This year we found one friend in the middle of making a Yule Log, others already in their pjs watching a movie, one doing aerobics in her bedroom. 

It is fun sometimes to drop in with a gift and just say
Merry Christmas!

Is there anything you make and deliver as a Christmas tradition?

We started the tradition of making food goodies for our neighbors at Christmas time years ago. I don't always make the same "goodies".
Its a nice way to show you care, especially when we are all "bundled" in our houses in the winter.
We also put a tract about Jesus with it.

I always loved decorating sugar cookies with my mom as a little girl ....and I still do as a mom with my kiddos. It's amazing how I don't even mind the mess! We decorated some last night and my youngest son was so into it- he dumped half a bottle of sprinkles on one cookie...It was sure sparkly!
Have a wonderful Christmas with your sweet boys!
