I know, I know, third night of Chanukah already and nothing from me. The truth is, we’re doing it low-key this year since we’re all so busy. We did have the traditional latkes and brisket last night. My daughter, who has a Curious George Chanukah book, was so excited for the latkes. And then she wouldn’t even try one. Shrug. That’s 2 1/2 for you.
I did find the time to make cookies with her.
We made these sugar cookies and then we spent time decorating them.
My royal icing didn’t work so we ended up brushing them with simple syrup and then “dipping” them into the toppings. Which worked well.
My daughter picked out the cookie cutters she wanted to use- a menorah, star of David, a dreidel, a snowman, a moose (hey, it’s a cold-weather animal) and a lobster. Yes, a lobster. But as the hippo pointed out, lobsters are clearly Christian because, as we know, there was more than one lobster present at the birth of Jesus.
Enjoy your holiday!
