Wednesday wonders: Christmas cookies

Let me begin by saying that after today, Wednesday wonders will be taking a break until after the new year.  There are too many posts I need to create and I need the extra days.

For this Wednesday I've been inspired by Erika at Bio Art Gal, Ro from In the know with Ro, and Marfi at Incipient Wings with their cookies they made recently.  Of course, I was also inspired by Kathy's cookie cutters.  Her blog is Hummingbird Woodland Studio. So today's photos, all provided by Pexels, were inspired by these three fabulous bakers who graciously shared their recipes and the fabulous baker who shared her cookie cutters and cookies with us.

And we all know that Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without
a rocking horse cookie cutter.

Thanks beyond belief for your visit today.  Wednesday wonders will be back after the first of the year.  And of course, keep inspiring me, my dear friends, followers, and readers.  You never know when your blog might be the inspiration that influences a Wednesday wonder.

What a great way to start Wednesday, Elizabeth! My name in lights, and marvelous pics of such creative cookies. Some of the ideas that people come up to create such goodness always impresses me, and makes me wish I was a size 2! Then I could eat these all day!(lol) Sending some HUGE hugs your way. I can't believe it's Wednesday already! RO

A great variety of cookies. I won't be baking cookies, only baked a Christmas fruit cake.
Have a wonderful Christmas Elizabeth and may the New Year bring you all the best, including lots of health and inspiration.

Funnily enough, Elizabeth, these cookies don't tempt me at all, but I do love the hot drinks and the cookie cutters at the end, and I appreciate all the excellent photographs. This is an excellent Celebration of Cookies!
As I said before, I never know what I will get when I come here.
Hope all is well.

Oh my gosh! These are unbelievably fabulous! I've been baking but I feel like a complete slacker compared to these wonderful cookie creations! I'm so glad you posted this -- partly to remind me to up my game but also to remind myself that people pick their priorities for time and this was a wonderful one. Three cheers to all!

PS -- don't forget to stop by my blog before the 25th. I will have a link on each post to my 10th blogging anniversary drawing!

It's been decades since I made cookies that had to be cut. I'm afraid I am proud of myself if I accomplish drop cookies lol The photos are inspiring, though.
