Colorado Christmas cookies.
I dedicate these photos to my family in Colorado and their family cookie exchange happening this Christmas Day. Sam and I are celebrating with family in Virginia today so we can't bring our orange chocolate biscotti or homemade fudge, but we are thinking of you and all of our family in Colorado and Arizona and beyond, and remembering wonderful Christmas holidays spent together. Even as adults, we still find joy in carrying on the traditions of youth, like family cookie decorating. And how can you blame us, with Mom's sugar cookies as light and melt-in-your-mouth delicious as ever, and a rainbow of butter cream frostings to create trees and angels and poinsettias and silver bells. Just don't eat too much of the frosting, or the cookies will look bare!
