One of the best things about Christmas at our house is the amazing decorated cookies my youngest daughter makes each year. This year after she made cookies of her favorite book characters, she catered to her daddy’s interests and made sports cookies for him. My husband is from Philly and I promise that he bleeds orange, black and white. Of course, our entire family are big Flyers fans (we don’t have a choice). Can you believe that my second “baby” was able to make these Flyers Cookies all on her own?!
We make cookies every year from a family recipe for the best decorated sugar cookies. My daughter decorates the gingerbread shaped cookies to resemble pop culture characters .
She simply uses store-bought frosting, food coloring, a knife and lots of toothpicks. She mixes the colors up on her own using basic colors of food coloring.
My husband asked for a Claude Giroux, the Flyers’ captain, cookie. (Can you believe my “baby” wrote G.I.R.O.U.X in frosting with a toothpick?! I’m in awe of her determination.)
I don’t know who’s more excited about these cookies, my husband or me. Now that I know my daughter can make Flyers cookies, I’m lobbying for an Elvis cookie
