Comments
This makes a LOT of cookies, so the more people involved in decorating, the better. Try having a cookie decorating party and invite as many kids as you can to help. Let them be creative, and when they ask you to judge the best cookie, don't wimp out and say, "Oh, they're all so good! They all win!" Kids know that's just a cop-out. After the kids are completely sick sick of decorating cookies and go home, you'll have to stay up the rest of the night doing the rest. But just think how many you'd have to do without the kids' help.
