The Last Cookies

 I baked these almond butter cookies on Saturday and decorated them on Sunday while on FaceTime with granddaughter #3 who was also decorating cookies. 

I left these cookies until last because they are the most labor intensive.  Rolling the dough, cutting out, baking, then decorating has taken hours on both days.

I make icing from powdered sugar and milk, coloring with food coloring to make green, red, yellow and white.  I also melt chocolate chips to use as icing and drizzle. 

I'm more the drizzle type decorator then extra fine details as you can see.

Next step is to package them up with some of the other cookies I made to give to neighbors and friends.
