This was the first year I tried my hand at making decorative sugar cookies for Christmas. They looked great, but I thought something was missing. What was the point of making all these shapes unless I could use them to teach my children? I went looking for a product like this and am happy to have found this one. The cookie cutters are a good size and sturdy. The book has sturdy pages, and uses the 4 shapes to explain the Christmas story. Can't wait to make these next Christmas and see what my kids think of their meaningful, pretty cookies!
