Holiday Cookie Exchange 2016

I spent a few days baking and decorating Christmas cookies for my friends second annual cookie exchange party.  I have been using the SweetAmbs Cookie Recipe and Royal Icing Recipe that I purchased from their site last year for $1.99.  It is the best recipe that I’ve ever tried.  It is a tasty Orange Vanilla Spice Sugar Cookie with a great flavor.  The royal icing recipe that is included is easy to make and I refer to her link on icing consistencies and tips every time I make my royal icing.

It took a few days but I was able to bake and decorate 7 dozen cookies for the party and another couple dozen cookies for my family holiday gatherings.
