Start with some butter,
add some sugar,
crack an egg,
mix it up,
add more stuff until a dough forms,
flour your work area,
roll out the dough,
find the strength to roll some more,
cut out some cookie shapes,
make your own cookie creation with the dough.
take a break for a day then come back to frost the cookies,
add sprinkles (and put some frosting on your face for good measure),
and most importantly, don't let anyone tell you you can't make Christmas cookies with Easter-colored frosting in March!!
