We thought it would be a fun experiment to see the results of making Christmas cookies alone vs baking and decorating with the kids! Keep reading to see the final products!!!

Our favourite Christmas cookie recipe is by Recipetineats. We are huge fans!! It is a simple sugar vanilla cookie that works every time. We use this recipe each year and absolutely love it.
