On the Seventh Day of Christmas Baking....

I'm really tired of baking. And I've managed to get a day behind, which means I'll be doing two posts today.

Today was supposed to be Day 8.

By the end of the 12 Days of Baking, I'll probably be showcasing store-bought food.

I had every intention of making homemade sugar cookies, using my Christmas cookie cutters, and beautifully decorating them with Royal Icing.

I finally moved off the couch at 9pm last night and unwrapped some Pillsbury Slice-and-Bake sugar cookie dough and made those instead.

Brian ate a cookie and said they were delicious.

He told me it was a million-dollar recipe.

I got up at 6:30 this morning and iced the cookies, which explains the poor lighting in the photos.

It was still dark outside.

See? I'm still somewhat dedicated to my 12 Days of Baking.
I've made these for my wonderful book club members. They deserve something much more special than sugar cookies, that's for sure. They've put up with my last-minute changes, and some of you even skim the entire book the night before the meeting to prepare for our discussion (ha!). It's been so much fun hanging out with you all once a month, and I can't believe it's already been a year! Thank you  for your flexibility, your participation, and your enthusiasm! Love you all!
