Christmas Cookies - Classic Mitten

How many of you have started making Christmas cookies? They make such great gifts.  I plan on giving some away, all neatly packaged, to some friends.
I thought it would be fun to share them with all of you too.

I'll start with the classic mitten cookie.

Step 1: Flood an oval shape with white icing for the cuff.

Step 2: Flood the rest of the mitten with blue(or a color of your choice).

Step 3: While the blue is still wet, pipe the white and red stripe.

Step 4: Using a skewer, drag the icing across the stripes.  Be sure to clean the skewer between each swipe.

More cookies to come!  Merry Christmas!
