I had originally planned to make some Christmas cookies with the girls, but we had so many goodies and sweets given to us by family and friends that the last thing we needed were more cookies. So the plans changed, and we decided to make cookies to celebrate the New Year.
Supplies you will need:
- Ingredients to make your favorite sugar cookies, or you can cheat like me and use a mix.
- Numbered cookie cutters (specifically numbers 2, 1, and 0)
- Toppings of your choice for cookies
- Eager helpers
The girls were very excited to help with the cookie making. Here is A pouring the melted butter in the bowl with the cookie mix. Only a little bit got on the table.
B dumps some flour in the bowl.
Little C helps to stir. She was very determined that no one help her with this step.
The kids have seen me use a rolling pin many times while making pizza, and they could not wait to use one to roll out their cookies.
Next, they used the numbered cookie cutters to cut out the numbers 2012.
We used m&m’s and different colored sprinkles to decorate the cookies. I gave the girls a handful of m&m’s, and they pushed them into the cookie dough.
Here are our New Years Cookies fresh out of the oven! Goodbye 2011, hello 2012. Happy New Year everyone!
