6 Real-Life Christmas Cookie Fails That Had Us All in Giggles

christmas cookiesAh, Christmas cookies. It seems like such a sweet thing to do as a family and yet never turns out quite the way you planned it. With mine this year, I saved it all for one day, which meant last Sunday, I stood in the kitchen for six-plus hours, producing eight batches of cookies, all from scratch. 

The sugar cookie dough had to be chilled overnight, as did the gingerbread, so the next day we rolled it all out, cut it, and shaped the gingerbread house. This was followed by baking. So last night, we broke out the frosting with glee! It was the best part!

My husband and I made the first 20 as giveaways and then we gave free reign to our 5- and 6-year-old and told them to "be creative." They took us pretty seriously. Below, find their 6 most "creative" Christmas cookies. We had a huge kick out of these and I am sure someday they will, too.

"the unblinking eye of Santa sees when you aren't sleeping" ... that's my favorite cookie!

I think you just need better cookie cutters. I can barely tell what those are supposed to be, regardless of the frosting LOL.
