Baking Christmas Cookies

 I had to bake 6 dozen cookies for our Ward (Church) Christmas Party yesterday (Saturday) so here is what I did:

I bought this mix at Sam's Club to save some time.  It had 5 pouches in it and I mixed them all up in my Bosch Mixer.  I could not have gotten another one in! lol

I spooned out 1/2 of the dough into a bowl to keep it white

To the rest of the dough I added Wilton color paste used for decorating icing in  Juniper color as it turned out to be the darkest green I had!

I also added a teaspoon of Almond Extract.Dec 2012 019

I baked 2 batches before I suddenly remembered to Add Crushed Peppermint stick to the white dough-  argh!   I bought a huge peppermint stick at the dollar store and put 1/3 of it in my cuisinart and ground it up

I use POWDERED SUGAR on my rolling mat instead of flour- (tastes better!)
Dec 2012 036I rolled the green into a snake type piece like you see hte white in this photo then I put p/s on my marble rolling pin and rolled it out- did the same with the white and then laid it on top of the green dough.

Then I rolled it like I always do cinnamon roll dough and cut into sections about 1/2 inch thick Dec 2012 028
Dec 2012 028I used  a short glass with a flat bottom dipped in powdered sugar to flatten the cookie on the cookie sheet before baking- and before putting in the oven I sprinkled GREEN sprinkles on them

There they are all finished- not as elegant looking as I had hoped but they were DELICIOUS!  7 dozen cookies!
