Took quite awhile and my arms almost fell off but the end result was quite worth it! I'm excited to share them with everyone on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day! As always this delicious cookie recipe is from Amanda over at I am Baker. I put fuller teaspoons of almond in vs. vanilla and it really made it pop! Check out her recipe for frosting too if you want to make your own.
I've tried this before and it works well! This time I found my frosting at Lynn's Cake and Candy supplies (already ready to go). I prefer this route when doing extensive decorating because the decorating part is so time consuming I prefer not to tack on more time with icing. Plus this icing is sooooo good. They have similar pre-packed royal icing at Michaels and Joann's.
Last night Jordan and I wrapped presents and packaged up the cookies to give away to my relative son Christmas Day!
