Christmas Recipe Week...

Happy Good Monday to all....
This week I am going to trying something a little different. This time of the year I start to do all my Christmas baking. I usually make a batch of cookies a day and freeze them so that by Christmas I have an assortment of treats! So this week I thought I would make a recipe card for each cookie I make this week! How does that sound! Today I actually included the picture of the cookie! I was a little disappointed with the icing...I had a hard time making them actually look like perfect little snowflakes!



For this recipe card I used my Karen Lockhart stamp to place in the middle of my Just rite stamp!


I hope this recipe is something that you enjoy making as much as I did!

I have one problem...I would love to cover each one of my recipe cards with a clear envelope to protect them from use. Does anyone know were I can purchase clear envelopes to cover my recipe cards!

Have a great day! I'm off to make "Chocolate Truffles".

  1. This is gorgeous Christine! What a fabulous idea to make recipe card with each batch of cookies! And those cookies look absolutely delicious - might have to steal the recipe, lol!
    I have clear envelopes - I will email you the link where I buy them.

  10. Hi Christine, my, those look yummy! I envy the fact that you're so organized! I've recently bought clear plastic envelopes at the dollar store. You get 25 for $1 and they're a good size. They hold my 6x6 cards in them. They're down the scrapbooking isle.
