Do you like to make cutout cookies with your kids for the holidays?

My kids have always liked making the shaped cookies in the form of stockings, santas, bells, reindeer, etc. However, sometimes the dough got stuck in the cutters and I needed to help them get the cookie out. And yes, more flour sometimes helps to release the cookie.

  • I tried one year when my dd was younger to make them from scratch and it was a disaster, it was a mess and they didn't turn out very wel and we were kind of arguing because it was so bad. We didn't stop making them though, we just bought the premade pillsbury dough and that was so much easier. It's the cutting out and frosting that's the most fun anyway :) After we started buying the premade stuff we had a great time.

  • Yes we love it and can't wait to do it this year, especially since my youngest is old enough now to decorate her own. Do you use plastic or metal cutters? I find I have more issues with metal ones so I tossed all mine and got plastic last year. Well, I have to buy them again because I lost them in a move (of course).
