afternoon of cookie baking ~

The afternoon of Christmas Eve got a little hectic and with it, a few sheets of rolled cookie dough got left behind in the fridge. This afternoon, we decided to cut the rest out in penguin shapes to celebrate the end of the Christmas cookie season . . . but who’s kidding who here . . . we just wanted cookies!! Why not one more small batch for ‘ole '08’s sake!

Whenever I roll and cut sugar cookies, I’m always left with the scraggly ends. Today and on Christmas Eve, I balled this leftover dough and reshaped them into thumbprint cookies with blueberry jam from our summer harvest – what a great combination!!!

Have a wonderful and safe New Year~! Welcome 2009 !!
