Sparkling Christmas cookies!

Stars have always fascinated my children. Whenever we are out at night, they are keen to point out where the stars are.

In the Christmas story, there were magi or magicians who saw the brilliant star of Bethlehem. They were stunned by its brightness and beauty. Something magnificent must be happening. Their curiosity made them embark on a long journey. They followed the bright star until they reached Jerusalem. When they entered the house where they found baby Jesus, they were overjoyed.

These easy star Christmas cookies are great for young children. The cookie dough recipe is quick and easy to put together, and the decorations for the stars while simple, are gorgeous.

When I invited Mr. E (2yo) to bake some star Christmas cookies, it was met with a very excited, “Yay!”
