Also to all -These cookies are delicious! I did not make penguins for lack of a penguin-shaped cutter, but I made other Christmas shapes like snowflakes and Christmas trees, and the decorating, which I did with my younger sister, was fun and turned out well! Highly recommend for bonding experiences!
@Lindyb1That is true, but your opinion is useless if you haven't actually tried the recipe. Like frelichc said, the point is to show other people what your experience with the recipe was like - if you've had no experience, it's not worth sharing.Maybe it is you who should lighten up.
Lighten up people, everyone us entitled to their opinion. What would be the point of a review if TOH were to censor the opinions.k
If you haven't made the recipe please don't write a review. I don't care for your opinion on how hard you THINK the cookies might be to make. I want to know if they are good and worth the effort....that would be more useful.</p>
I made these last year with my Mom and my then 4 year old daughter. We had so much fun and my daughter was so proud of her cookies that we weren't allowed to eat them until Santa got his and the rest of ours were gone! lol We will be making these again since it is all I have heard about from my daughter since Halloween! What a great new tradition and memories have come from these cute cookies! Merry Christmas to you all!
Bracious, can you come over to my house and help me with my baking?Please tell your parents on behalf of the rest of us that they have raised a truly talented and wonderful young person. I was very impressed that you were able to make your points so clearly. Bravo!!
To salty1 and Lindyb1Just one question. Are you you the Grinch before your hearts grew more sizes? The intro to the recipe says that the kids can help DECORATE the cookies. When I was in cooking school, for a fund raising for charity we did a cookie decorating party for children. We baked the cookies (sold them for 1$ each) and provided all the frosting, smarties, and sprinkles etc). We showed the kids (aged 4 to 15) how to use piping bags and let them rip. Some of the results were truly horrendous but beautiful because they came from the heart of a child. It was one one most fun and satisfying days of my life. They had fun and so did we. Learn to lighten up a bit.

Oh and to further my post, Don't rate it 1 star because you think the description of,"Your children can HELP decorate these cute Christmas cookies." Is ridiculous. It clearly says "help" not do it by themselves. And where did it say that the Children have to make them all by themselves. If your going to make cookies with your children, Obviously you would be in the kitchen SUPERVISING them. And for older children (I'm talking 12+) I'm pretty sure that most have a basic knowledge of Kitchen Etiquette, and they could need no supervision at all. Im glad that a large amount of you stand by my side on this topic, And I thank you. Yes, for young children, this may a complicated recipe. But NEVER underestimate kids like me. Thats the worst thing you can do to your children.
I already wrote a review, but don't see it posted, so maybe I screwed up. I will make this recipe with my grandkids, maybe even use a cartoon cookie cutter, and let them decorate anyway they want. all four of them are under 7, and no matter how the cookies may look, they will be proud of there accomplishment.makin and decorating the cookies is half the fun (showing them off is the other half) christmas is all about the little kids, so let's enjoy them.
