Show us Your Life-Christmas Cookies

It's "Show Us Your Life- Christmas Cookies & Treats" over on Kelly's Korner this week. I went to a Wilton Christmas Cookie Blossom class at Joanne's about a month ago and learned how to make these yummy treats. They would make a great christmas gift. I included the recipe for the sugar cookie below.

This is the one that the instructor made.

Candy Cane Cookies

Christmas Tree Cookies

This was made by the girl I took the class with. I love her container.
