Messy is often the best.
One of my favorite Christmas traditions is decorating cookies. Our Christmas cookies are a basic sugar cookie cut out with cookie cutters. It’s actually my grandmother’s recipe, and the only recipe for which I always sift the flour. The fun is both in choosing which cookies to cut out and then finally decorating them.
But it’s messy and time-consuming.
The best icing is sometimes the messiest. Drippy, juicy, gloopy drizzle.
The best part is spending time together making them.
Or maybe it’s eating them.
