One way I relax is to bake!
I thought I would bake sugar cookies with a Winter twist to give out to my friends and family.
Mittens & Hats seemed like a good choice for this cold weather!
Here is the recipe and tutorial if you want to try this yourself!
It is easy to do and a fun way to relax. I made the decorations easy enough so that anyone can do it!
