I decided to make my Christmas baking as simple as possible this year. Aside from purchasing a chocolate bundt cake and tossing some festive Christmas sprinkles on it (which really looks quite pretty), I purchased a pre-made sugar cookie mix. I followed the package instructions to make cut out cookies (reduced the butter, added a tablespoon of flour) and baked until barely golden. Ok, actually, I burned the first batch to dark brown crisp, but whatever.
I even used a pre-made frosting and added some food coloring and sprinkles. Ya, I cheated, ok? Sue me. Christmas time is hectic and who has time to do everything from scratch?
Bada bing, bada boom, Christmas! Enjoy.
