I have been diligently mixing, cutting, baking, melting, and decorating Christmas cookies. This is what I'm filling my tins with this year:

I did these:
I think I need to go add some melted chocolate to finish off the tree stumps...
Twinkling little stars!
I really want to bite their heads! Chomp...Chomp...oops....Not the Gum drop bottoms!
