spending an afternoon baking cookies

If you have a free afternoon or morning and you don’t know what to do,  then here is a tip for you. These happy cookies are easy to make, and at the end you have a huge moutain that you can surprise several friends and family members.

You can use different cookie shapes and colors for holiday themes.

For the cookies I used the recipe from the hummingbird cookbook, which can also be found online here:

I have used the following ingredients.
