Ask just about any child or grownup who celebrates Christmas what are some of the nostalgic and traditional foods most associated with December holidays and more often than not they'll mention Christmas cookies. Afterall, who can imagine many other things more festive and memorable than decorating cookies during chilly days with kids? However, while that's all wonderful to think about there might be a few things stopping you from actually doing it: namely all the time and kitchen stress involved.

Undecorated Cookies,
Not to worry. You can still have your holiday cookies and eat them, too! With delightful homemade-in-Scotland Walkers Pure Butter Shortbread Festive Shapes you'll have ready-to-decorate cookies all set to go. You won't even have to turn on the oven, much less mix up cookie dough and possibly even burn the cookies.

Add frosting & sprinkles and you're ready to decorate,
Instead, you can skip right to the part everyone loves: spending quality bonding time together with your daughter or son decorating these delicious, pre-baked cookies that are available exclusively during the holiday season. These festive delights come in a 6.2 ounce box of a dozen cookies with three each of four popularseasonal shapes: Bell, Christmas Tree, Star and Santa Claus. Even undecorated, these holiday treats are delicious eaten straight out of the box. They'd look equally beautiful unadorned as well, mixed in with an assortment of other colorful Christmas cookies on a dessert party platter.

Cookie decorating in progress,
Decorating holiday Walkers Shortbread Festive Shapes is a great activity for kids as you can see from the frosting and sprinkle bedecked cookies my daughter and I made together. Right now is a great time to have fun being creative with cookie decorating. To decorate these, you'll find an avalanche of choices for seasonal pre-made frostings and gels in tubes and all kinds of colorful sprinkles, sugars and edible sparkle decorations at party and cake decorating shops both in-store and online.

My daughter's decorated cookies,
Following the imprints in each festive shape, decorating is as easy and entertaining as painting by numbers. Remember how much fun that art project was to do when you were a kid? The best part is that kids will delight in decorating all of the fun shapes and then getting to eat their little masterpieces, one at a time -- not all at once, hopefully.
Why not get some Walkers Shortbread Festive Shapes cookies and have some of your kid's friends over for a cookie decorating party during the holidays? They'll have the time of their lives while you snap lots of photos to post on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and/or Instagram. Best of all, you'll be creating something sweet to eat to celebrate the season as well as permanent memories your child and you will both treasure for a lifetime.
