Christmas Is Coming

Christmas is coming! I have my annual Christmas party this week. Normally I do these cute gift bags for my guests, but this year I have had issues with my mail. I have been working out-of-town for my job for 3 days a week, so I been putting my mail on hold while I am out-of-town.

Why am I doing that? Well, I had a few packages get delivered and someone stole them. Yes, they were items for the gift bags. All is not lost, I decided to do something a little more heartfelt homemade cookies. I am doing some nice goodie bags this year for the party.

When I came to this idea, at first I thought 12 days of Christmas cookies for recipe posts here on Seduction in the Kitchen. Well with all this travel I have to do, I realized that would not work. Still, I want to do some cookie posts, just not going to do the 12. I admit I do love making Christmas cookies, so I am looking forward to seeing my friends faces when I give them these goodie bags at the party.

With all the baking I will be doing, I actually got a Cookeezi Citrus Juice Press to review. This is perfect! I use lots of fresh lemon juice in many recipes. Bottom line I love this kitchen gadget! I get more juice out the fruits with it then I have with a plastic twisty juicer.

So how about a timeless Classic Cut Out Sugar Cookies? Every Christmas cookie tray has them. They are fun to decorate.

Kids love cutting out the shapes of sugar cookies. I love the buttery richness of these Classic Cut Out Sugar Cookies. I finally figured out the secret to the colored sugar and getting to have stay on the sugar cookies.

I put it on after they come out the oven. Of course, it doesn’t stay on. I finally asked someone I know that worked in a bakery to the secret. She told me: put the sugar on just before you pop them in the oven. The heat melts them slightly and the sugar stays on. Finally, I cracked the bakery secret of the Classic Cut Out Sugar Cookies.
