Christmas cookies

The Christmas cookies baking marathon went well. I made a double batch of dough from Nigella's Feast cookbook, and added a shake or two of allspice to the vanilla flavouring. I probably got about 60 cookies out of it.

The piping was... not very good. I agree that my skills with a piping bag need some improvement. Need more practice. It was still fun though.
These cutters all came from Taste at Bowen Hills. I'm going to pipe on some royal icing, in white, to outline the shapes and add some cute detail. The four silver cutters were $4.95 for the set and the red reindeer was $2.50. Cheap and festive!
