Yesterday, we had our annual Christmas cookie decorating day.
I made a double batch of this cookie dough, and I also made a terrible mess.
Note to the wise: a double recipe does not actually fit into a Kitchen-Aid Artisan mixer.
We did our usual non-traditional decorating style, which by now is a tradition for us. 😉
Anyway! About the guessing game: every year since probably 2012 or so, we’ve played a guess-the-cookie-artists game here on my blog after we decorate Christmas cookies.
I almost decided to skip it this year but before Sonia left last night, she said she thought we should still play. So here we are, thanks to Sonia.
And this was probably a very good idea on her part because probably by next year, Lisey will have moved out, and that will only leave Sonia, Zoe, and me as cookie decorators. So this is maybe the last year we have enough people to do a guessing game. 😉
As it stands, four cookie artists make this too easy…there would only be 24 combinations to guess!
So, two of us have two cookies in this year’s roundup, which means there are 288 combos possible (4x4x3x3x2x1 if my probability math is correct).
Here are this year’s cookies! First, we have a centipede.
Next, a bell with a cat on it (of course!)
Third, a snowman cookie made into a minion:
Next, a polar bear.
This broken gingerbread man was inspired by the Shrek movie.
And finally we have a Christmas tree.
Here are the cookies with numbers next to them:
How to guess
We have four cookie artists:
Leave your guesses in the comments like so:
and so on, up through six. You will use two of our names twice!
The first person to guess all six right will win a $100 Amazon gift card from me (emailed to you). And if no one gets all six right by tomorrow morning, I will just pick the first person to get closest to the right answers.
