We made a cookie tree! I bought the cutters last year, actually, but for some reason we never got round to it. K is an accomplished biscuit-cutter-outer now, though, so it was into the frigid kitchen and on with the dough. These are vanilla biscuits rather than gingerbread; I think I'd like to try it with lebkuechen next time just for the yum factor. And of course next year I plan to actually have some icing sugar in which isn't damp, and some proper sweeties to decorate it, rather than panicking at the last minute and only having chocolate chips in. Still, it kept us busy on a snow-bound afternoon, and it is rather tasty...!
