I do make cut cookies every now and then, but until Friday afternoon, I didn't own a single cookie cutter. This is partly because I hate the accumulation of stuff. (I like that I have empty cupboards in my kitchen... they're so much easier to clean.) But, it's also partly because I am practical to a fault. When I make my cookies, I use a glass to roll out the dough and then flip it on it's end to cut the cookies. I think circles make the best cookies anyway, they can be pumpkins, ornaments, faces, sunshines, etc.
BUT.... when I came across an entire box of cookie cutters at a tag sale on Friday, I couldn't resist. Not because I planned on baking anything, but because I new they would be darling as ornaments. And they are, don't ya think?!
This brings the Comstock family a tiny bit closer to our goal of a handmade Christmas tree this year! YEAH... only a bizillion more ornaments to go. I hope we are ready to decorate, as tradition holds, on the day after Thanksgiving!
